Fostering in Blackpool


Welcome to Blackpool Council’s fostering service. If you’ve ever thought about becoming a foster carer, you’ve landed in just the right place.

We are part of a new partnership with four other local councils in Lancashire and Cumbria to recruit much needed foster carers. Foster with Us is a friendly fostering support hub available to help you in any way they can.

We match local foster carers with children who need a loving, safe family environment. Together, our community of foster carers is changing lives for the better.

As a not-for-profit fostering service, everything that we do is for the children that we help and for the foster carers that we support.

Are you ready for a rewarding, exciting foster career?

As our community of foster carers will tell you, fostering is an incredible journey. It’s an opportunity for you to use all your personal and practical skills to help a child overcome challenges and grow in confidence.

Fostering is so much more than a job – it’s a way of life. Fostering with Blackpool Council is a career that offers fantastic development opportunities with a competitive financial rewards package.

We're with you at every step

From the moment you first contact us, through to the day you retire, our Blackpool fostering team is by your side, 24/7. You’ll always feel fully supported and part of a fantastic community of like-minded foster carers.

Why choose to foster with Blackpool Council?

It’s really quite simple. We believe in placing Blackpool children and young people with local foster carers.

As the local authority, we are first to know of children and young people needing a foster home and will always look to prioritise our community of foster carers first. We operate as a not-for-profit service which means that we put children at the heart of everything we do. Plus, we offer a competitive financial rewards package and a wraparound support service that guides you at every step.
