Wirral’s foster carers are ‘best of Wirral’ says our vulnerable kids’ champion

WITTAL'S “Walks Of Life” campaign has resulted in more than 200 queries from potential foster carers looking to care for vulnerable children and young people in the borough. 

With a new foster carer needed every 20 minutes across the UK, Wirral’s Pledge Champion for Vulnerable Children has reiterated the need to carry on raising awareness.

Speaking at a special event in Birkenhead Park to mark one year since the foster carer recruitment campaign was launched, Cllr Treena Johnson, Pledge Champion for Vulnerable Children, said:- “Our foster carers are the best of Wirral; opening up your homes, your lives and your hearts to give support, encouragement and love to a young person in need is truly exceptional. People like you make me so proud to call this borough home.”

Launched at the Light Cinema, New Brighton, a year ago, the:- ‘Walks Of Life’ campaign used film, advertising and social media to dispel myths about foster caring including misconceptions around who can foster.

The latest phase of the campaign:- “Time to Foster, Time to Care” was launched during Foster Care Fortnight in May 2016, and while the need to recruit foster carers continues across the board; this phase is looking at the need to recruit carers for over 10's, teenagers, and sibling groups.

Fostering roadshows have been delivered by fostering ambassadors, and foster carers, children and young people have been sharing their most significant moment of this past year via social media (#FCF2016).

The event in Birkenhead Park included a treasure hunt and activities organised by the park rangers and fostering team.
