Fostering Unfiltered


Trafford is proud to be a partner in Fostering Unfiltered, a new initiative 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 (GMCA) and supported by all ten local authorities across the city region, Fostering Unfiltered embraces the realities of fostering 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.

We want to make Greater Manchester the friendliest region for foster carers; a place where residents respect foster carers and are inspired by the difference they make for children and young people.
