Foster carers are at the heart of the team who look after children in care. Their commitment keeps children safe, provides them with love, care, and help towards a brighter future.
We know that no two children in care are the same. Each child has their own characteristics and individual needs, but all children need strong, caring, and trusting relationships with those who care for them.
We hope that every foster carer for Bury will find fostering a rewarding experience.
If you already foster with an independent fostering agency (IFA) or another local authority, and wish to transfer to Bury Council then the process is a little quicker.
Contact us today to find out how to transfer over to us with a smooth transition.
We provide different types of fostering to meet the needs of individual children. This includes short and long term fostering, supported lodgings, and family and friends.
As long as you have a spare room, and are over 21 years, it doesn't matter whether you are single, married, a homeowner or renting, we would love to hear from you.
We know you will have lots of questions, and our team are more than happy to help. Request an info pack, give us a call, email, tweet, or see an ambassador at an event.
As a fostering service within Bury Council Department for Children, Young People and Culture we are regularly inspected by Ofsted. If you would like more information about the regulatory framework, please visit the Foster Line website:
