Contact the fostering team

Stockport Council is part of a new partnership between all 10 local authorities in Greater Manchester. We're all working together to recruit foster carers who can provide a loving and safe home to children in care in Greater Manchester, increasing and enhancing placements for children and young people locally.

For the first time, anyone considering fostering in our region will now benefit from a united, single support hub, which is backed by the Department for Education.

You will continue to be supported by our experienced fostering team at Stockport Council throughout your application, but our wider Greater Manchester Community and Hub officers are also here to offer additional support and guidance throughout your fostering journey. Everyone is available to support you from the initial application process and beyond.
