About Foster4

We are a new collaboration between the four Local Authorities in Cheshire.

Four local authorities recruiting foster carers together

Foster4 is a pioneering new foster carer recruitment service. Based at Warrington Borough Council’s offices, we are a collaborative project, recruiting foster carers on behalf of the four Cheshire Local Authorities: Cheshire East Council, Cheshire West and Chester Council, Halton Borough Council and Warrington Borough Council.

By pooling our resources, we are aiming to recruit even more foster carers, provide even greater support to the ones we have, and ultimately keep more local children with local foster carers, reducing our reliance on Independent Fostering Agencies (IFAs).

We launched on 3rd April this year and have been busy promoting fostering across our ‘patch’. We run regular recruitment campaigns, attend a whole host of events, shows and best practice conferences and run our own regular information sessions for those thinking about fostering.

Fostering:
A flexible, home-based career.

For children and young people in your community.

For exceptional training, support and benefits.

For a flexible, home-based role.

Some of our foster carers have been fostering with us for over 40 years, others just a few months. All are ordinary people, just like you, doing an extraordinary role. Fostering families come in all shapes and sizes. There really is no such thing as the ‘ideal’ foster carer.

If you’re thinking about fostering, we really would love to hear from you. Tell us a little about yourself and we can provide lots of advice.

We are a Local Authority, not-for-profit service
