Introduction to Fostering

Halton look for potential foster parents of all ages and backgrounds too. People who simply have the life skills to care for a child or children who may be confused, frightened and wondering what the future holds. By providing a warm, nurturing environment at a time when a child needs you most, you can help them to feel safe and secure – however short or long the time they’ll be with you

Understand

Children come into foster care for all kinds of reasons. But they all need the same thing- your unconditional love and support whatever length of time they spend with you, whether that’s a night, a month or several years. Understanding the unique challenges of fostering can and should take some time. After all, there are children of all ages and from all backgrounds who may need to spend time with you, including sibling groups, teenagers and children with complex needs.
