If you want to make a difference to a child’s life and give something back to your own community, fostering could be the perfect fit.

Fostering is a role that will change your life and the life of every child who comes into your home.

Right now, we have a shortage of over 8,000 foster carers in the UK.  We are looking for foster carers throughout the North West and the Midlands who want to make a difference to children’s lives.

The requirements for fostering in the UK are:

  • Have a spare bedroom
  • Be over 21 years old
  • Have British Citizenship or indefinite leave to remain in the UK

Why Join Family Care?

We are a family-owned organisation focussed on improving the lives of the children and young people we care for.  

By following therapeutic approaches underpinned by the Secure Base model and providing full training, we support our foster carers to deliver therapeutically informed care with confidence.

“I would totally recommend Family Care.  The important thing for us was the support.  If a situation arose that I didn’t feel I was able to deal with, I knew I could ring at 5 o’clock tea time or 3 o’clock in the morning and there was somebody on the end of the phone…The clue is in the name, Family.”
