Fostering in Sefton
Lorimer Fostering is an independent fostering agency which recruits and supports people from a variety of backgrounds to become Foster Carers to enable them to look after children who cannot live with their own families. Established in 2004, we have developed a reputation of excellence in fostering children, keeping children and young people safe and helping them to reach their potential.
All kinds of people can become foster carers, you can read some of our carer stories here. Like the children they look after foster carers come from a variety of backgrounds. You can be married, divorced or single; employed or out of work, have children of your own already, own your own home or rent. The main necessities are having a room to spare, a commitment to care, patience and understanding and above all a big heart!!
Children come into care for all sorts of reasons; due to a family illness, mental health issues or other health problems like alcohol or substance misuse. Some children have experienced abuse or neglect. All of them have had an unsettled journey, will have experienced loss and separation from their birth family and are in desperate need of love, support and understanding.
At Lorimer, we offer support and guidance to you as a foster carer just as you provide support and guidance to the child or young person in your care.
We are looking to work with carers who can offer enthusiasm, warmth and energy who can help children to feel secure in their home. If this is you, get in touch with our team today by either calling 08700 38 77 99 or by submitting your details in the ‘Request a Call Back’ section.
We are waiting to hear from you!
