Make an extraordinary difference

There are 1,600 looked after children in Liverpool, and we need more local foster carers to keep children local and provide a safe and caring home.

Be inspired by the stories below about the difference you could make as a foster carer.

Katlin's Story

When Katlin first went into foster care she felt embarrassed and only told her best friend. Katlin told us how different she feels now, and how being fostered has helped her achieve what she wanted in life.

Katlin told us - "When I went to get my GCSE results, I just couldn’t believe how well I did! So that made me want to do better and achieve better things".

You already have the skills!

A kind and caring nature maybe the most valuable trait of a foster carer.  If you can provide the love, stability and routine that may have been missing in a child’s life, you could really make a difference.

If you can see the situation from the child’s point of view, listen, understand and have patience; the rewards you'll get will far outweigh the challenges.

And not forgetting the importance of a sense of fun!  What could be more rewarding than bringing fun, happiness and adventure back into childhood? 

As long as you are over 21, have a spare room and live full-time in the UK, we would love to talk to you about Fostering for Liverpool City Council. 

Bianca's Story

As a 19 year old, with an exciting future at University, Bianca has been able to pursue her dreams and realise her potential, because of the opportunities being fostered gave to her.

 “Being fostered has completely turned my life around, Having someone who was always there for me every day, made me feel important and helped me realise my potential” - Bianca.
