Children who need fostering

​​​​​It's important to find Rochdale foster carers for Rochdale children and young people to en​able them to maintain continuity in their lives and relationships. We're interested in hearing from people from all backgrounds who can provide a stable home life for children and young people. We're keen to recruit a wide range of families.

A group of siblings

It's important to try and keep brothers and sisters together in their foster placement and we need foster carers who have the space to care for larger sibling groups (this is more than 3).

Older children and young people

 We currently have a shortage of foster carers who can offer placements for older children between the ages of 12-18.

Children with disabilities

 We need foster carers who can look after disabled children with physical and/or learning difficulties between the ages of 0-18.

Black and minority ethnic children

It's important to enable children to grow up where the cultural and religious needs can be met and require foster carers from a variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds.

Mother and baby placements

We need foster carers who are able to provide a home to care for and support young parents and their child.

Children with challenging behaviours

Children who have experienced significant trauma who need highly skilled carers to help them cope with their behaviours and transition into adulthood.
