Lorimer - At the heart of fostering

Fostering Agency Carlisle

With over 9,000 foster carers needed in the UK, have you ever thought about fostering? Do you have room in your heart and your home to care for a child or young person? At Lorimer Fostering, we are looking for foster carers  Carlisle to help transform children’s lives and shape their futures for the better.

Children with diverse needs and situations are in need of a loving, secure home environment; some on a short-term basis, others for maybe months or even years. To cater for these children, there are different types of fostering and at Lorimer, we are here to help guide you through the fostering process and help give you advice on which type of fostering placement will most suit you and your family.

We are looking to attract foster carers from a diverse pool of people to enable us to provide a greater choice of placements in Carlisle.

We believe in being a fostering agency with a family feel, ensuring that every foster carer and fostered child we have the privilege of working with feels like part of our family.

If you are over the age of 21, have a spare room in your home and experience working with children or young people, you could become a foster carer with us.
