Lorimer - At the heart of fostering

Fostering in Tameside

Right now, there are children in Tameside who are going through a difficult time in their lives and need love, stability and care. You can help by fostering a child or young person and opening up your home and heart. Becoming a foster carer for Lorimer really does help you to change a young person’s life for the better!

Fostering is about helping local children and young people get through an emergency or a crisis. There are many reasons why a child or young person can’t be with their birth family. The majority of young people who become looked after in Tameside do so because of abuse or neglect, with a minority due to problems with their behaviour. In some cases a child’s parents may be ill or having relationship problems. In others, the reasons may be more complicated and the child may be at risk of serious harm. Whatever the reason, every child needs to be cared for in a supportive and nurturing environment.

Have you got what it takes to become a foster carer and help a vulnerable child or young person to stay in their local community and school, close to family and friends?

Do you want to help a child grow and develop and build a pathway towards a successful future? Have you got the time it takes to care for a child (It could be anything from a few hours a week to a few months or even longer)? Can you work as part of a team? It doesn’t matter if you are a young professional or retired; married, divorced or single; have children of your own already or not; own or rent your home – you just need to have a spare bedroom and be able to provide appropriate care and attention.
