St Helens Council for Children and Young People’s Cabinet Member Cllr Nova Charlton said: “As corporate parents the council is responsible for the care of 483 children and young people but with 194 foster parents in 120 households we need even more to meet this one Providing youth with the loving homes they deserve so they can fulfill their potential.
“We all saw the moving John Lewis advert over Christmas it really touched hearts and got people talking – so if you think you can help by sponsoring a child or young person I would heartily recommend you ask to get in touch with our funding team who will support you every step of the way.”
