Fostering

Tameside is part of a new collaborative partnership between all 10 local authorities in Greater Manchester, all working together to recruit foster carers who can provide a loving and safe home to children in care in Greater Manchester, increasing and enhancing placements for children and young people locally.

For the first time, anyone considering fostering in our region will now benefit from a united, single support hub, which is backed by the Department for Education.

Local councils across Greater Manchester are joining forces to grow the number of fostering households that can make a difference to the vulnerable children and young people in need in our communities.

You will continue to be supported by our experienced fostering team at Tameside throughout your application, but our wider Greater Manchester community and Hub officers are also here to offer additional support and guidance throughout your fostering journey. Everyone is on-hand to support you from the initial application process and beyond. We are a fostering community for Greater Manchester and you’ll be supported by other teams within Tameside

To find out more or start your fostering journey today, head over to the Foster for Greater Manchester website  or call on 0300 303 0321.
