Welcome to our Fostering Team

Amazing things happen throughout our fostering family every day. As a founder led agency, we put children at the heart of everything we do.
 
We take pride in ensuring a team approach, where our foster carers are supported to become part of our family. We are constantly striving to create a caring fostering community where our foster carers and staff work together to ensure children’s needs are met.
 
At Care 4 Children Fostering, we work relentlessly to recruit, train and support our foster carers and are committed to providing stable, caring, family environments in which children will thrive. Our foster carers have access to an excellent training programme of ongoing support which ensures we can place children with a variety of needs.
 
We employ experienced and highly skilled social workers to ensure that we achieve the best possible outcome for the children in our care, and that every placement receives the dedicated support in whatever way is needed.
 

Fostering in Ashton

If you are considering fostering in Ashton, get in touch and we can talk you through every step of the process and answer any questions your might have. Our priority is the children that come through our Ashton fostering agency, though it’s very important to us that our carers are also supported, whether that be emotional support or financial, with expenses for clothing, food, pocket money etc. covered.

Everything we do is intended to be “beyond expectation” – fostering should be reassuring and comforting for the children, and easy and rewarding for you, and we’ll do whatever we can to ensure that happens. Our training and support for our foster carers at our Ashton foster care agency is second to none.

Fostering is not for everyone. It requires a huge amount of dedication, empathy and understanding, as many of our children looking for foster care have upsetting stories to tell and come from difficult backgrounds. They’re looking for stability and normality during a tough time, and whilst it’s rarely easy, it is always very rewarding for our carers.

Our Ashton fostering agency works with a diverse group of foster carers from many backgrounds and careers, though there are some consistent requirements. Carers must be over 25, with a full health and DBS check, and able to give round the clock care to the child. Each fostered child should have his or her own bedroom, unless there are same sex siblings involved.

Lots of energy, commitment and understanding are key, so if that sounds like you and you’d like to find out more, give us a call. We would ask that you think carefully about the impact on your own children, if you have them, of fostering another child. Consider, too that due to the nature of their situation, our children might exhibit challenging behaviour, and might not show their gratitude outwardly.

Give us a ring and you could transform the life of a child in need.
