Sefton’s Fostering Service would love you to join them for the unveiling of their beautiful Angel Wings designed by children and young people from Sefton.

The event takes place: Monday 31st Oct at Crosby Library, Waterloo, Crosby Road North, Liverpool L22 0LQ

 

Angel Wing Launch 11 – 12pm 

The Angel Wing art installation will be made up of 614 individually decorated paper feathers and are in honour of foster carers who truly are guardian angels to our foster children.

The 614 individual feathers represent each child in Sefton’s care, some of whom are in need of loving homes.

On the day guests will hear from two of our dedicated foster carers Paul and Dawn and will get to watch a video with young people about how the project has unfolded.

Fostering Information Session 12 – 1pm

After the launch of the Angel Wings, a Fostering Information Session will take place for anyone who wants to speak one-on-one with the team and our carers. Here you can get more of an insight about the real-life experiences of our foster carers, find out more about the process of becoming a carer and ask any questions.

Recruitment Team Manager Jennifer Rose Murphy said “We’re so excited to see the Angel Wings really coming together. We’ve been working with our children in foster care, children visiting libraries and other events and school children from across the borough, to really involve our communities and raise awareness.

“I would like to say a massing thank you to teachers and pupils from Formby High School, Maghull High School, Stanley High School, and Summer Hill Primary School, who have all really embraced this project and sent us such colourful and creative designs.

“We desperately need more foster carers to give loving homes to children in Sefton. If you want to make a difference and have ever thought about fostering or if you want to learn more so you can help us share our message, please come along.”

Refreshments will be available on the day.

Sefton’s Foster Carers are paid for their skills, receive full training and support, plus allowances. Anyone who is thinking about fostering can find out more by visiting the dedicated website at https://seftonfostering.co.uk/
