Foster Care Fortnight (14-27 May) is a national campaign that aims to raise awareness of fostering and show how foster care transforms lives.

Oldham Fostering Service desperately needs more foster carers for brothers and sisters, teenagers, young parents and their babies and children with complex needs.

There is no such thing as a typical foster carer, life experience and personal qualities make all a difference to a child or young person. All we ask is that you are over 21, enjoy working with children and have room in your home.

Carers receive a tailored support package, plus payments and allowances up to £29,000 per year (dependent on skills and experience).
