We are looking for foster carers for the growing number of children in Sefton who need a stable, loving home. If you are thinking about becoming a foster carer, do not hesitate to register your interest using our easy online form.

As a foster carer we offer you guidance, support, comprehensive training and an allowance to cover the costs of caring for the child or young person.

You could be a brilliant foster carer but there are a lot of myths and misinformation about what fostering is or who can and can not foster, do not let this put you off possibly the most rewarding life choice you will make. You can find answers to any question by visiting the Sefton Fostering website.
