Why fostering with Fostering People in the North West?

With a shortage of 1,200 carers in the North West, we’re looking to recruit across the region including in Cheshire, Lancashire, Manchester and Merseyside.

When you foster with us, you’ll be allocated a dedicated social worker. They’re just part of a local team of fostering experts who’ll be there for you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our team have worked for us for many years, are highly experienced and are dedicated to offering a high levels of support to our foster parents.

Our dynamic team live in the areas we support and know the North West well, including the North West local authorities we work with, because of our staff stability we have built excellent working relationships over the years, which is just one reason why we receive thousands of requests for foster families every single year. This means we have low vacancy numbers across our fostering families, which ensures you have the very best possibility of consistent children in your care.

And don’t forget our events! Our North West team are a fun loving group, who love to get together to celebrate the achievements of foster parents and young people, so there’s always a family activity, fun day or coffee morning to look forward to.  We also hold support groups in community venues in Lancashire, Merseyside and Manchester.
