Fostering Unfiltered

fostering-unfiltered-headerTrafford has joined with our Greater Manchester local authority partners to launch Fostering Unfiltered, a bold, new campaign with an ambition to inspire more people in Greater Manchester, from all walks of life, to become foster carers.

The campaign turns the spotlight on the real-life experiences of Greater Manchester’s community of nearly 1,500 foster carers to help local people explore fostering and decide whether it’s right for them.

Led by Greater Manchester Combined Authority and supported by all ten local authorities across the city region, Fostering Unfiltered embraces the realities of fostering with refreshing honesty to show the ins and outs of foster care. The campaign reflects the real lives of existing foster carers by sharing their everyday experiences and challenges.

By giving people greater knowledge and awareness, the campaign aims to demystify fostering to make the role more accessible and inspire a new generation of foster carers. We want to empower others to join our growing community dedicated to providing safe and loving homes for children and young people across Greater Manchester.

Take a look at the Fostering Unfiltered website.

There is also a private Fostering Unfiltered Facebook group designed as a space where current and potential foster carers can share experiences and ask questions within a supportive fostering community. Anyone interested in finding out more about fostering is very welcome - you can request to join the Fostering Unfiltered Facebook group.
