Welcome from everyone at Foster with Bury

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.


are you already a foster carer?

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.
