All kinds of people become foster carers. Like the children they look after foster carers come from a variety of backgrounds.
Register your interest in fostering
If you do decide to become a foster carer you will not be expected to 'go it alone'. From your first enquiry to each subsequent placement you'll be fully supported.
Currently there is a national shortage of foster carers. The latest estimate is that at least 8,750 foster families from across the UK are needed to meet the ever increasing demand. Could you help?
There are many reasons why children of all ages may need foster care. What ever the reasons, all of them will have experienced loss and separation from their birth family and will need your understanding, support and love.
Foster Carers are approved, registered adults who, on behalf of Sefton Fostering, look after children and young people who for whatever reason cannot live with their birth families.
Sefton Fostering Service offers support and guidance to families
that foster so that they can provide stable and loving homes for
children who cant live with their own families. We are
looking to work with carers who can offer enthusiasm warmth and
energy who can help children to feel secure in their home. Click on
