Fostering awareness consultation

​This consultation is now closed.

Your views are important to us whether or not you are interested in fostering.


The Council currently looks after 493 children in Cheshire West and Chester, but only has 171 foster carers within its service.

Please help us to measure the success of our recent recruitment drive for foster carers within your area, by taking a few minutes of your time to answer the following questions.

How to get involved

This consultation closes on 11 November 2016.

We have posted 3,000 questionnaires to randomly selected addresses in geographic areas where the fostering awareness campaign was targeted.  Residents who received the paper questionnaire can choose to complete the online survey.

If you did not receive a paper questionnaire, but want to take part, then you can complete the survey online, or by printing off the questionnaire and posting it back to us. If you would like a paper questionnaire sending to you, then please contact us.
