Welcome to our Fostering Team
Fostering in Knowsley
If you’re interested in fostering in Knowsley then Care 4 Children could be the right agency for you. Our approach is completely child centred and our small size allows us to give personalised support every step of the way.
Knowsley is a challenging environment for young people to grow up in, with above average youth unemployment. Fostering in Knowsley can make a huge difference to the lives of children growing up in care, and if you feel you’d make an excellent foster carer, we’re happy to guide you through the application process.
Whatever your age, gender, sexuality, faith or marital status, you can apply to be a foster carer. What’s important is that you can give kindness, support and a stable home to children in need. The more diverse the range of carers that we can match with children available for foster care, the better.
As a Knowsley foster care agency, Care 4 Children will offer you a range of placements. These could be short term placements or full time, long term foster care. You may be asked to support a teenager at a particularly vulnerable time in their life, or offered the opportunity to foster much younger children. Respite placements are also available, and the more challenging the placement the more intense the level of support we will give you, to ensure we meet the needs of both the child and you, the foster carer.
What most prospective foster carers want is to be supported through the application and assessment process through to the final foster panel interview. This can be a testing time, but the small, friendly team at our Knowsley fostering agency will guide you through this crucial step on your journey. Once you’re accepted as a foster carer we’ll support you at every step of your journey.
Becoming a foster carer is the most rewarding thing you’ll ever do. So if you think you have the big heart and the great sense of humour required to support our most vulnerable children, Care 4 Children will be with you every step of the way.
