Warrington Fostering Agency : Make A Difference In A Child’s Life
Lorimer Fostering has been supporting foster carers in England for over 15 years and as one of the most well established and experienced independent fostering agencies, we would love for you to join our team.
We are seeking to recruit more foster carers in Warrington and the surrounding areas. Figures from The Fostering Network highlight a shortage of 1,200 fostering families across the North West of England.
We recruit, train and support people from a variety of backgrounds to become foster carers and enable them to look after children who cannot live with their own families.
Fostering isn’t simply putting a roof over a child’s head; it’s about giving them a loving home and a brighter future. Right now, there are over 68,000 children in care in England and over 230 children in need of fostering in Warrington. Could you be the person to give these children in need a short or long term home through foster care?
These children rely on the support and commitment of our foster carers who can offer them a secure and loving home.
As a foster carer with Lorimer, you will never be alone. We provide 24/7 support so that help is always there, day or night, should you need it. Arrangements and expenses for days out and holidays are available, as is access to respite care.
What support do we give out Warrington foster carers?
Fostering has its challenges, but it is hugely rewarding, both emotionally and financially.
We understand how important the role of a foster carer is. A range of support packages will be provided to help you, including a generous financial fostering allowance (this will depend on the age and particular needs of the child you are fostering). Our mission is to provide the highest quality of foster care in Warrington, and one of the ways we do this is to ensure that we only recruit the best foster carers and then give them the training they need to succeed.
