Fostering Unfiltered

Fostering Unfiltered is a bold, new campaign with an ambition to inspire more people in Greater Manchester, from all walks of life, to become foster carers. 

Led by Greater Manchester Combined Authority (external link) 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.

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.

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

We want to make Greater Manchester the friendliest region for foster carers; a place where residents respect foster carers and are inspired by their collective endeavour.

Take a look at the campaigns’ dedicated website (external link) and follow the campaign on social media to hear all about fostering direct from our community of foster carers.
