A few of our foster carers talk about their experience of fostering in a selection of written accounts and videos. Could you help change a child's story?

Spooktacular Fostering party

Wirral's local Foster Carers, children and Fostering staff came together to enjoy a spooky event on 24th October, 2023. The event provided an opportunity to thank and celebrate the sons and daughters of Wirral Foster Carers and acknowledge the significant contribution of children of foster carers to successful foster care.

Children and adults enjoyed pumpkin carving, biscuit decorating, Halloween-themed colouring, apples on strings, pinata, and dancing. All the children attending were in an array of fancy-dress costumes, from ghouls and goblins to superheroes and fairy-tale characters. There were prizes given for the best costumes.

It was a really lovely morning and everybody had a spooktacular time!
