Here’s Why Fostering In Manchester Is Great!

At Perpetual Fostering, we’re proud of our roots here in the North West. This time we want to tell you all about why Manchester really is a great place to be a foster carer.

Options For Recreation
The size of Manchester means there’s always something to do and see with your foster kids! This city really does have something for everyone: either educational days out or other types of entertainment:

  • Take them to the IMAX to see a film in 3D
  • Visit Chinatown and enjoy some delicious food
  • Spend a day in Salford Quays, the place that Old Trafford, The Lowry, The Imperial War Museum North and Lancashire County Cricket Club all call home!

A Sporty Heritage
On the subject of Old Trafford, Manchester has a great sporting history. This has been built up by not one, but two, world famous football teams – Manchester United and Manchester City!
Whether the kids are already fans – or fans to be – you could spend a great day taking them for each of the club’s Museum and Stadium Tours.

And it’s not confined to just football either. Ask your foster children if they’re interested in Rugby, Cricket, Cycling or Athletics – there really is something for everyone.

Or, even better: get those kids directly involved with sports! Encourage them to join a football, tennis or cricket club. It’s part of your role as a carer to help your foster kids improve their wellbeing, and sports is a great way to achieve that.


The Music Scene
British pop wouldn’t be the same without Manchester, and kids love pop music! But that’s not all. If you and the children want to attend musical performances and shows, Manchester has more options than anywhere else in the Northwest.

So you see, if you’re based in this region of the country, you’ll have an amazing experience if you decide to foster with us. There’s always something to do, and always ways to keep those foster children occupied! Contact us today to find out more about how you could get involved.
