Can you help a child in need?
We need caring people like you
We are Perpetual Fostering
We're an independent fostering agency based in Bolton. We cover the whole of the North West and West Midlands.
We have supported more than 1,000 carers and children over more than 20 years.
We're committed to supporting the children we place and helping them fulfil their potential.
Our foster families and children build such successful relationships because we meet everyone's emotional and professional needs.

"We urgently need your help"
During the month of December 2019, we received almost 1000 referrals from the local authorities. These are requests for foster placement in one month alone.
We work with our team to try and house as many of these requests as we can, but we need more carers to meet the demand.
You can foster!
As our community of foster carers is extremely diverse, we know there is no such thing as stereotypical foster carer.
Fostering is flexible and everyone has the chance to make a positive contribution to a child's future.
You will be supported and rewarded
From the moment you join, our team of professional social workers will ensure that you will be trained, supported and reassured throughout the entirety of your fostering journey.
