It’s important that we look after ourselves, our family and friends during the Coronavirus outbreak. But have you considered how you could also help our local community?

 If you want to make a difference to children and young people in Knowsley our fostering team is still available to answer any of your questions.

Knowsley Council has staff and technology to help you with your application to be a foster carer, simply give us a call 0151 443 3958 if you’d like to have a chat about fostering or visit the Foster for Knowsley website where you can find out more or make an enquiry online.

 Cllr Margaret Harvey, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services in Knowsley, said: “Our Foster Carers are amazing, all year round and in all kinds of emergency situations. With the Coronavirus outbreak making us all think about what we can do to help our communities, it’s a reminder that fostering is a way in which you can change young lives for the better and make a lasting difference to so many people.

 “If you are someone who thinks you can give a loving and nurturing home to a child at a time when they need it most, please consider fostering. Our team will be happy to talk to you today and answer any questions you might have.”
