1. Groups and events for carers

Support groups

Our local foster carers enjoy regular day and evening support groups. They're a place where they can share their experiences and help support each other in their fostering roles.


A range of activities for fostering families are held throughout the year.

Over 60 children visited Blackpool Pleasure Beach in July. Sons and daughters of foster carers visited Chill Factor and Jump Nation as part of the National Sons and Daughters campaign. The campaign rewards them for their valuable contribution to the fostering role.

An annual dinner dance rewarding foster carers is held locally with over 100 foster carers attending this prestigious event.
