Wirral's fostering service hosted an Easter extravaganza at Birkenhead Park.
Full of chocolate, treasure hunts, games, a DJ and more, it was an opportunity for foster carers and children who are looked after to connect, support each other and swap stories.
Partner organisations such as The Hive, Wirral Youth Zone and OOMOO supported the day with activities for families.
One foster carer said: "Our grateful thanks to everyone who helped to organise today's gathering and to all behind-the-scenes staff. Everyone helped to make the day a great success.
"Our little girl had lots of fun enjoying the activities and meeting with other children. We were also able to chat to many of your Fostering team colleagues and your partner organisations. It was good to be able to meet to chat with other carers again too. Thank you."
