Could you become a foster carer for Liverpool?
05 May 2017
Liverpool City Council is looking for foster carers to look after the children and young people who come into local authority care.
The city council’s recruitment officer Phil Watson is out and about across the city during Foster Care Fortnight from 8 – 20 May speaking to people with passion and commitment to make a difference to children’s lives (see list of venues). All you need is a spare room and the time to make the most of a rewarding opportunity.
Extensive support and training is offered and the council welcomes carers who wish to transfer to the city council from independent fostering agencies (IFAs).
Councillor Barry Kushner, Cabinet member for children’s services, said: “Taking in someone else’s child is life changing, both for the foster carer and the young person.
“We are seeing increasing numbers of young people coming into care and need the help of the local community so that we can look after our own.
“Please join with us to provide the best care we can for our city’s most vulnerable children and young people so we can look after our own.”
