Foster in Warrington

We believe that every child should have a good home. At Next Stage Fostering, it’s our mission to make that happen in towns all over the Northwest.

We work closely with local governments in towns like Warrington to raise awareness of foster care in the area, so that amazing people like you might take the first step in transforming a child’s life for the better.

Why Warrington?

Well-connected to Manchester and Liverpool and with a high rate of home-ownership, Warrington is an ideal location for families to grow together.

While there are plenty of happy families in Warrington, there are also many children in need of foster care.

And we need people like you to change that.

  • Support care — Foster carers offer families support by providing part-time care to children.



The benefits of fostering in Warrington

When you become a foster carer in Warrington, you could earn between £295 to £495 per week per child to cover both the child’s maintenance cost and your fee for caring for them.

You could have what it takes

You don’t need lots of qualifications to become a foster carer: there’s no exam that you need to pass to qualify to help a child. The best foster carers we’ve worked with have all shared the same qualities: patience, a sense of humour, and a great deal of love to share.
