Fostering in Bootle
Fostering is a wonderfully rewarding career like no other. Whether you are already fostering or considering fostering in Bootle for the first time, we are here to help.
As a Bootle fostering agency, we know about fostering and we know the local area. We pride ourselves on the support we give our families and service providers; as a result, we are one of the most respected agencies in the area. We are always looking for people across the Liverpool area who are interested in learning more about becoming foster carers and how to provide the care that so many children and young people require.
With the support of our Bootle foster care agency, we will help you and our network of carers to change lives.
Children come into care for many reasons and through no fault of their own. No two children are the same, with their stories always unique. We will help you, our foster carers, and tailor your training and support to whatever you need.
By choosing a Bootle fostering agency, you are helping a young person to stay in a familiar environment, stay at the same school, and keep in touch with their friends. Having this continuity makes a significant difference.
We believe Bootle is a great place to be; with the regeneration continuing, it is only getting better. With modern sports facilities, all the high street stores and local businesses, there is always plenty to do for all ages.
Most people can be a foster carer. Your marital status, race, sexuality and even previous fostering experience are no barrier, although you must be aged over 25 and of sound health. We do ask that a child is given their own space; therefore, you must have a spare bedroom so that any prospective foster children would have privacy.
There are distinct types of care, from emergency overnight help to a few days’ respite, long term and even potential adoption. Sometimes young parents also need help with their children. Give us a call – let’s talk!
