Are you interested in fostering a child in Liverpool? Can you offer the love and support that vulnerable children need when temporarily separated from their family?
A happy and healthy environment is essential to a child’s development and good foster parents can literally change the course of a child’s life.
Over 52,000 children end up in care in the UK and foster care accounts for 75% of children in care. It’s estimated that around 32% who enter the care system are under five years old. Meanwhile, 61% are aged between 5 and 15, which means there are far more older children and teenagers looking for placements than toddlers.
One of the most heartening statistics is that 70% of siblings in foster care manage to find a placement together, which can make a huge difference to their morale.
