Fostering in Stockport

1. Overview

Teenagers

All kinds of people become foster carers, you could make a huge difference in a child's life. Children and young people are at the heart of everything foster carers do.

Our local children come into care for a number of different reasons and many have experienced abuse or neglect. We're looking for local foster carers who can look after a diverse range of children, from babies through to teenagers.

Our local foster carers give our children the opportunity to remain and live in the town they know best. They allow them to attend their own school or college.

We provide our foster carers with an excellent training, support and financial package. We'll help guide them through the assessment process. We'll work with them as a team to ensure the needs of the foster carer and the child are met.

Join our foster carer family. We’re with you every step of the way.
