Overview

We urgently need more foster carers for Blackburn with Darwen children.

As a foster carer, you can make a real difference to a child's life. You can provide a stable loving home with the support and encouragement they need to flourish and do well. For some people, fostering is a way of ‘giving something back’ to the community. For others, it’s a rewarding career that fits well with family life.

Fostering is a professional role with extensive training and ongoing support. We provide a generous weekly allowance plus expenses.

Because we’re a local authority fostering service, you will know that you’re helping local children and you can be sure of regular placements, especially if you’re considering fostering as an alternative to traditional employment.

If you're interested in fostering, you can fill in our enquiry form. Someone will contact you to talk you through the fostering process.
