Lorimer - At the heart of fostering

Find a Family Information

Posted on 14th October 2022 by

Friday again! It comes around so quickly every week 😊 

We’re well into the autumn now; leaves are falling, the evenings are darker and we even had a foggy morning this week! 

While we may all be looking forward to cosy nights in and spooky Halloween fun, there are still so many children and young people across the North West waiting for Foster Families. 

Can you help us find our next Foster Family? 

At Lorimer, we are always looking for new families to join our team. We need families from all backgrounds, all walks of life…because that’s where our children come from too. 

We know that fostering is a challenging career – and in fact no one knows that better than our approved Foster Carers. They enjoy all the positive moments the children they care for have, as well as support them through the hardest of times. 

” If we were to offer any advice to people thinking of fostering, it would be to go for it! The pros outweigh any cons and you’re helping children who have faced a tough start in life. Watching and helping these children move on to develop and grow further makes us proud and feel a sense of achievement and joy. “

– Pam and Jim

“Is fostering easy? No, it’s not at times, it’s very challenging – but it is also very rewarding. “

– Vanessa and Alan

This week, we are asking all our Foster Carers, old and new, to reach out into your communities and see if there is anyone else who can offer what you do. Love, stability, advocacy…. 

You should receive one of our packs soon via your email address. If you don’t receive one and would like to help, let us know and we will get one out to you.  

Don’t forget, there’s a bonus for you, if a family you find is approved as a Foster Carer 😊

How do I talk to people about fostering? 

Hopefully (!) you’re as proud of being a involved in fostering as we are. You’ve probably already told everyone about what you do, and that’s fantastic. 

We think that what really helps some people to understand the NEED for Foster Carers is the sheer number of children and young people who need care – currently around 80,000 in the UK. 

This is a staggering amount of children. 

So, we are asking once again for you to promote fostering among everyone you know – and those you don’t! Do you know someone who has a spare bedroom now that didn’t a few years ago? Or someone who is looking for a change in direction?  

We also know that people don’t decide to foster overnight. It’s a decision that has to be reached with the whole family on board. That’s why we are available to talk to anyone interested 7 days a week. 

Thank you, your support is forever needed, and always appreciated.
