Fostering in Knowsley
Make this a year to remember! From Knowsley Safari Park to the Albert Dock, Knowsley is a wonderful place but there are more and more children in need of a loving home! If you have what it takes to give a child love, support and stability at a time when their own family can’t, why not make this the year you Foster with Lorimer Fostering?
With the number of children in care on the increase, we are always on the lookout for foster carers who are able to provide temporary homes for children and young people. If you have a big heart and the time and space to care for a child, Lorimer would love to hear from you.
There is no set criteria to being a foster carer – many people think you need to be married, own your own home and be financially well off. Don’t believe the myths! In fact, foster carers are paid a fee and receive regular training and support – so if you like the idea of working with children this could be the career for you!
As a professional foster carer for Lorimer Fostering you will receive a professional fee (anything from £20,000 to £60,000 per year, dependent on placements), 2 weeks respite/holiday pay and a separate allowance for birthdays and Christmas. You will have regular supervision from your Supervising Social Worker and contact with localised support groups.
We are a highly respected fostering agency covering all areas in and around Knowsley. We want every child and young person in foster care to achieve their full potential and live enriched and rewarding lives and need foster carers in Knowsley to help us achieve this.

There are different types of fostering and we will work closely with you to decide which type of placement best suits you. Whether you opt for emergency placements, where a family crisis may result in a child needing care or when a child’s safety is threatened, Short-term care; where you provide foster care for a few weeks or months, Remand; when a young person is remanded by a court to the care of a specially trained foster carer, or Long-term Care; where long-term foster care is offered until the young person becomes an adult.
Whatever type of fostering you choose, be assured it will be an incredible journey will lots of rewards and challenges along the way. Most rewarding of all is seeing the difference you will make to a child’s life, putting a smile on their face and helping shape the person they will become.
