Why Foster?

Reasons for fostering a child in need

Here at Beacon Fostering, we support foster carers based in the North West, such as Chester and Lancashire, with looking after children in need – both for the short and long term.

Foster carers can expect to be in for a challenging, yet infinitely rewarding experience, by providing children and young people the best start in life, and preparing them for the future.

There are many reasons why you may be interested in foster care services, some of which we will explore below.

Starting a family

Some people who desire to start families of their own may be unable to do so, and fostering is an excellent alternative.

It allows for such individuals to experience raising children and provide them with a loving home as if they were their own blood, uplifting both parties.

Giving back to the community

A foster parent may have had personal experiences in the system, having been raised in the custody of others due to a less-than-ideal background.

This kind of life experience is particularly beneficial in giving children and young people a safe place to live and thrive, potentially creating a positive cycle for society.

Increase in free time and space

For some people, they may have children who have long flown the nest, or may have a lot of space in their home to accommodate a child or children in need.

Older foster carers can still have the time and energy to look after children in need. Whether or not these people have experience raising children, Beacon Fostering will provide them with training, guidance and support.
