Become a foster carer, do something amazing
We’re delighted that you’re considering fostering a local child.
We fully understand that this is a big life-changing decision for you, and we’re here to help you every step of the way.
Blackpool Council have assisted many prospective foster carers with their fostering journey, creating a happy, stable and safe environment for an ever increasing number of children requiring temporary, and in some instances long term care.
Have a look around our website - learn about the process, the types of fostering available and what it is like to be a Blackpool Council foster carer. We also hold regular informal drop in sessions where you, your friends and family are invited to drop in at a time that is convenient, to come along and find out more.
