Foster Care Stories


Be inspired by interviews with the people who turn children’s lives around…


Based here in Oldham, we are a friendly, dedicated team who believe in building strong relationships with our carers, helping to create child centred family environments and communities for foster children.


Meet Our Carers

“Safehouses Fostering is like being part of a big family. They have so much support and so much love and care for these children. They don’t just place children for the sake of placing them, they will really go that extra mile to find the right match.


Knowing what these children have been through and knowing what’s happened to them and where they’ve come from, just to hear them sat at home, laughing and playing, or even niggling each other, to me, is the best thing ever.” – Safehouses Foster Carer


Meet Our Team

“We’re very much child-focused, and for us it’s important that we get the match with the young person and the foster carer as right as we possibly can from the get go” – Wayne Brown, Fostering Service Manager


Meet Our Foster Care Leavers

“I’ve really felt listened to and heard. And everybody always had the time to spare as well, I never felt like I ws annoying someone by asking for help” – Care Leaver Gareth on the support he continued to receive after he had left care.
