North West

Want to foster?

We find you the best agency in your region.

When it comes to taking the next step in the fostering process, it can be confusing and time wasting as there are many fostering agencies to choose from. There isn’t a great deal of information about the differences between the agencies and what they can offer you as a potential foster carer.

This is where we can help.

Simply Fostering – Be a foster carer

We are not a fostering agency, we are an independent company providing free information and a fostering agency matching service for suitable people interested in becoming foster carers, and for people who want to find the fostering agencies with the best support, training and financial rewards to choose from.

To be a foster carer you will need to have:

• The time and energy to invest in a child or young person
• A bedroom for the exclusive use of the foster child
• Couples will need to arrange their working hours so that one carer can be available full time
• Single carers will need to be at home full-time or have flexible employment
• A full UK driving licence or have excellent transport links

Fostering Agency Database – North West

Our Independent Fostering Agency Database holds a list of member agencies in the East, who we recommend based on their reputation, quality of service and the type of support and allowances on offer.

Fostering children – Foster care experts

Together, our team has over eighty years experience of working with foster carers, foster children, and fostering agencies in the UK, and has helped many hundreds of people to become happy and successful foster carers.

Unsure about taking the next step?

Information about fostering.

We provide comprehensive information about foster care and help you to reduce the risk of you choosing the wrong fostering agency.

Fostering agencies.

From your contact form, one of our social work experts will match you and your situation with the most suitable fostering agencies in the North West, on our UK Independent Agency Database.

Types of fostering, allowances, pay, babies, jobs.

Just like people, Fostering Agencies are not all the same. They have different support, allowances, quality of training, and access to respite care and support groups.

Not all agencies foster babies, some prefer to look after teenagers, some agencies expect you to be at home full time, others are happy if you have another job.
