Everyone wants to make a new year count. Whether it’s making this year you change your life or the lives of others. Luckily, we have the perfect way for you to make 2023 the most life-changing year yet.

Here at Olive Branch Fostering, we are always looking for people who want to take up the foster carer role. Whether you have experience or are completely new to the world of fostering, our team is ready and waiting to chat about all things fostering.

If you’re still on the fence as to whether to get in touch, here are a few reasons we think fostering with Olive Branch is the best way to spend 2023.


We want our carers to feel like they have a great network to lean on. Our community brings together like-minded carers who are all looking to make a difference. We ensure that every individual feels welcome and like part of the team.

As soon as you join us, you instantly become one of the Olive Branch family and we’ll make sure you have everything you need to grow and become the best foster carer you can be.

Competitive Allowance

Being a foster carer is a richly rewarding experience, but we know it can be a huge undertaking especially financially. That’s why we make sure to offer all of our carers a competitive weekly allowance.

Not only do we want you to be able to take care of yourself, but we also want you to feel like you have access to everything you might need to make your foster child feel comfortable and at home in their new residence.


As well as financial support, we also make sure you have all the knowledge you need. We make sure to host regular support groups and activities to help you share your experiences. This can offer a support network of other foster carers and social workers who know exactly what it’s like to be a foster carer.

We also offer comprehensive training and 24-hour access to social workers.

Foster caring can be a 24/7 365-day job and making sure you always have a source of support and guidance is extremely important to us.
Variety is key

Our foster children come from a variety of different backgrounds, from different cultures, nationalities and ages, Olive Branch has an Ofsted accreditation for being the most diverse foster agency in the North West. This means we welcome a truly diverse mix of carers. If you are already a carer and want to make the switch to Olive Fostering, we can help you make that transition.


So, as long as you have a passion for caring and a desire to make this year the year you finally take the leap and become a foster carer, get in touch. Our team are happy to answer any questions you may have and put any worries at ease.
