Bolton Fostering: Find out if you could be a foster carer in Bolton

Providing foster care in Bolton is an invaluable commodity which is not only admirable but a worthy profession.

Not everyone has what it takes to foster children.  You need to be a warm, caring, patient and understanding person that can be firm and supportive so as to enhance a child’s life.  You need to be able to provide a nurturing environment in order for the young person to feel safe and help them with their development.  The rewards of being a foster carer can be plentiful and range from something small like seeing a child genuinely smile to life altering changes.

Fostering is a challenging career, which is why as the leading Fostering Agency, we at Lorimer Fostering believe you should be fully supported and receive regular training on the latest guidance to ensure that you are the best foster carer you can be providing the highest level of foster care in Bolton.

How Can I Become a Carer?

Becoming a foster carer is a significant step in someone’s life, both for the carer and the young person who will be placed with them. It is, therefore, important that the process is thorough and comprehensive.

We also understand that taking the first step towards becoming a carer can be very daunting, especially if you do not know much about fostering. So to ensure that you fully understand what fostering is all about and to ensure you are making the right decision we make each stage of our process transparent.

Who Can Become a Foster Carer?

Foster carers come from as wide a range of backgrounds and circumstances as the children they look after. This is vitally important, as all children need to be carefully matched with prospective carers to ensure that the placement will work and that individual carers are equipped with the necessary skills and experiences to meet the needs presented by the young people.
