Foster with Lancashire County Council and create memories

Over 2,000 children and young people are currently being looked after here in Lancashire, including older children and sibling groups, so there is always a need a recruit more foster carers.

To start the year Lancashire County Council is running a campaign to encourage more people to come forward to become foster carers. The campaign is called 'foster with us and create memories' and features a range of youngsters carrying out activities which fostered children often don't get a chance to experience – such as learning to bake a cake, play football or appear in a play. The purpose of the create memories theme is to show potential foster carers the difference they can make to a young person's life in quite small ways.

Fostering is a great way to help children and young people enjoy a normal life and flourish in a safe and loving family environment. Being a foster carer is a tremendously rewarding and emotionally uplifting experience - you are making a real difference to someone's life. As a Lancashire County Council foster carer you'll receive local support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, initial and ongoing training, and a generous allowance.
