Bury recognise the importance of offering comprehensive support to foster carers. As a Bury foster carer, you will receive generous financial allowance which will reflect your skill level and the age of the child you are fostering as well as practical support and regular supervision. We also offer a varied support package including twice yearly parties, support groups, mileage and discount benefit card to use at local retailers.
In Bury we are currently recruiting foster carers who are able to care for sibling groups, older children and young people.
We are keen to hear from people who are able to offer either full time care or part time care / regular respite.
If you are interested to find out more, please visit our web site to get in touch, request a pack or contact us for an informal chat.
Fostering Unfiltered is a bold, new campaign with an ambition to inspire more people in Greater Manchester, from all walks of life, to become foster carers. Led by Greater Manchester Combined Authority and supported by all ten local authorities across the city region, Fostering Unfiltered embraces the realities of fostering with refreshing honesty to show the ins and outs of foster care.
The campaign reflects the real lives of existing foster carers by sharing their everyday experiences and challenges.The campaign turns the spotlight on the real-life experiences of Greater Manchester’s community of nearly 1,500 foster carers to help local people explore fostering and decide whether it’s right for them.By giving people greater knowledge and awareness, the campaign will demystify fostering to make the role more accessible and inspire a new generation of foster carers.
The aim is to empower others to join our growing community dedicated to providing safe and loving homes for children and young people across Greater Manchester.We want to make Greater Manchester the friendliest region for foster carers; a place where residents respect foster carers and are inspired by their collective endeavour.
Take a look at the campaigns’ dedicated website and follow the campaign on social media to hear all about fostering direct from our community of foster carers.
