Welcome to our Fostering Team
Fostering in Chorley
There are many vulnerable children and young people who need a safe and secure place to call home, and this is where being a foster carer performs a vital role. If this is something that you are already doing or are considering, then our Chorley fostering agency can help you, as you start or continue your fostering journey. We are a small, well-established agency, and you can be assured of a professional and personal service from us. Our experienced team is always available, to offer a high level of support to all of our foster carers.
If you already live in the area, then working through our Chorley foster care agency is the ideal opportunity to enable children to be placed within the local area. Many children who are fostered have suffered traumatic and difficult experiences, so being able to place them with someone who is familiar with the area that they know, will hopefully make this period of readjustment easier.
The main benefit of being a foster carer is the fact that you are providing a child in need with a safe home environment. If you decide to start fostering in Chorley, then our fostering agency will not only provide you with all the advice and practical help you need, but will also offer a generous financial package.
Deciding to foster requires total dedication. Foster carers should be able to demonstrate understanding and have the ability to cope with children who may have complex behavioural and emotional needs. Fostering can also impact on a carer’s own family, so this should be appreciated if you are considering fostering as a career. Applications to foster will be accepted from people of all religious, ethnic or cultural backgrounds, regardless of marital status. However, you must have a bedroom to spare, as well as flexibility, patience and the time and energy to look after a young person or child.
