Have you ever considered becoming a foster carer?
Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Christmas ecard message this year focuses on one of the area’s most vulnerable group of people – children and young people in need of a foster home.
It’s message is simple; more foster carers are needed to provide children and young people in West Cheshire with a loving and caring home.
With over 250 children in the Council’s care, and only 126 approved foster carers, it’s so important to recruit more carers so that children can remain in the local area, close to their school and community where appropriate.
If you are over 21, fit and well enough to care for children, have a spare bedroom and can provide a stable home for a local child - you could foster. The Council will provide you and your family with support every step of the way and provide ongoing training and advice, along with a competitive financial package – fees plus allowances of up to £422 per week per foster child.
If you think you could foster please get in touch with the fostering recruitment team on:

Please mention that you heard about this campaign through the school website.
