#WhoCares – This year, will you say ‘I care’ to a child in need?

Each day, children and young people in the North West and the West Midlands are taken into care. They’re thinking: 'Who cares?'

These children need welcoming, loving people. Determined, interesting people. People who will invest time and energy into transforming their lives. People like you.

This year, Children need you to say: 'I care'

It probably won’t surprise you to learn that there’s a huge shortage of foster carers

That's why we're part of the drive to recruit new foster carers all year round.

You don't need any particular skills or qualifications to become a foster carer. All you need is:

  • Experience of life
  • Passion for helping young people
  • A spare room

If those 3 things apply to you – and you’re interesting in transforming the lives of children and young people in care – then download our free guide:
