Join our team and support a local child

We are proud to come together with 26 councils nationwide during the World Cup to cheer on the benefits of fostering with your local council.

In our video below we say that no child should ever walk alone and have 'nothing but the best' chances in life.  This is where you could be the difference!

If you'd like to find out more about fostering with Liverpool and welcoming a child into your world, please share a few details below.

Or call 0151 515 0000 for an informal chat.

Do something amazing, change a life

There are nearly 1,600 looked after children in Liverpool and we need more foster carers to support local children.  We're looking for foster carers from all walks of life to provide happy, secure homes for children of all ages.

Give a child the best chance in life

Like the Everton FC saying - 'Nil Satis, Nisi Optimum' - 'Nothing but the best is good enough', we want the same for all Liverpool children, and as a foster carer with Liverpool you could be part of a team who help make that a reality.

You'll go on a journey together...

As a foster carer, there's no doubt there will be ups and downs along the way, but our foster carers say it's the most rewarding journey, and we'll support you all the way.

Hear from our foster carers...

"Our supporting social worker is fantastic! She has lots of experiences and we know without a shadow of a doubt there’s a whole team supporting us" - Claire

"It's really nice to be able to affect a positive change on a child's life. Some of the stories are heart-breaking and it's great to try and bring a bit of joy into their life while they're with us." - Dom

"As soon as they come in the front door we make them a part of our family. We give them a family life, love, encouragement and support to help them follow the right path" - Stephen.
