Fostering teenagers or helping to keep siblings together in one stable and loving home can be one of the most rewarding experiences you can have.

By becoming a foster carer you can turn around the lives of young local people helping them to achieve their true potential.

In St Helens there is a particular need for foster parents to look after teenagers and brothers/sisters who want to stay together.

St Helens Council offers allowances, training, help and advice.

Should you take up the opportunity you will be helped at every step of the way by our support team.

You may have children of your own or experience gained in a work environment, or you may be keen to develop a career working with young people.

Applications are welcomed from those who are single, in a relationship, married or divorced, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

All are assessed on their own merits and the type of care you could offer a child is the most important thing.

Interested? The Fostering Team would love to hear from you.
