Thinking about fostering in Manchester?

Currently, there are over 1,200 children living in foster care in Manchester. Some of these children will have experienced neglect or abuse, others may be in care due to a family crisis or bereavement, but all need somewhere safe to stay while they're not able to live at home. 

With the rising number of children in care, we're urgently looking for more people in Manchester and surrounding areas to open their home and heart to vulnerable children. If you're interested in fostering in Manchester, then we'd love to hear from you

With over 25 years' experience in fostering, you can trust us to make your fostering journey enjoyable and rewarding. We spend time building strong relationships with our foster parents and the children they care for, so we can put into place the support and training they need to thrive. And while our office is based in Warrington, you'll receive the same quality support as any of our foster families, including regular home visits with your dedicated social worker.

So whether you’re looking to take your first steps in fostering, or you’re an experienced foster parent in search of a more fulfilling experience, we're here to help you take your next step.

About us

Orange Grove was founded in 1996 by two social workers who understood that strong relationships held the key to successful fostering. As with all families, relationships matter. They provide a stable platform for growth, which is why we commit time, effort and resources into nurturing them constantly.

We do this for foster children by getting to know them and providing a safe and positive family environment. We do it for our foster parents by treating them individually and tailoring our support to their needs. And we take care to build strong and positive relationships with local authorities and our other partners, so we can all work effectively together.

This has been at the heart of our philosophy ever since we were first set up over 20 years ago. Today we have around 400 children currently in our care.
