Fostering in Manchester with Compass

Whether you’re new to fostering or an experienced carer, we’ll provide you with all the support and training you will require to help change a young person’s life.

We are actively recruiting foster carers in the Manchester area, particularly in Altrincham, Bolton, Bury, Farnworth, Hyde, Leigh, Middleton, Oldham, Prestwich, Radcliffe, Rochdale, Stockport, Stretford, Trafford, Wigan and Salford. We have had a fostering presence in the region for over a decade and have an established foster carer base across the county. Our offices are situated in Bolton, Blackburn and Bradford and we have social workers providing support for foster carers throughout Greater Manchester.

We understand that the decision to become a foster carer can be a daunting one, and that sometimes you’ll want to talk to someone who has been through the process themselves.

That’s why we offer prospective carers a ‘buddy’ – one of our experienced carers who knows the ups, downs, ins and outs of the process and who can offer support and advice from the minute you apply to the day you are approved. So whether you’re just wanting to find out more or already made an application, we have someone you can talk to.

One Size Does Not Fit All

Every child is different – and so is every foster carer. Children’s needs vary greatly and at Compass we understand that yours do, too. As an independent foster care agency, our foster carers come from many different backgrounds. The one thing they all have in common is knowing that giving a child the stability & warmth of family life is one of the most rewarding things you can do.
