Why We Care
- Blogs and News
Over the last 2 weeks, we have been sharing stories, quotes, messages of thanks, and even our best dance moves, to raise awareness about the rewards of fostering and our need for more foster carers in Liverpool.
Foster Care Fortnight™ is The Fostering Network's annual campaign, and this years theme was #WhyWeCare.
We asked some of our amazing foster carers and team members to tell us why they care and what fostering means to them. Here's just a few highlights!
"We specialise in keeping sibling groups together, because we're both 1 of 6. A six year old stayed with us long term. When she got married, she asked Dave to walk her down the aisle and when she had her first baby, I was her birthing partner"
Sue and Dave. Foster carers for 30 years!
"I care about fostering because it gives our young people a chance to be a part of a family life"
Catlin, Participation Officer, Children in Care Council
"I foster because I have a lot of love to give, and I've found three perfect people to give it to"
Jacquie, Foster Carer of siblings
"I care about fostering because children are 100% of our future"
Stuart, Service Manager, Fostering
