What is fostering?

When a child cannot live at home or with family they can become a child who is looked after by the local authority. Foster care provides stability, safety and a nurturing environment when this happens.

Types of fostering

We are looking for lots of different people with different experiences and backgrounds to care for children and young people who are just as individual as our carers.

Who can foster?

We work with a wonderfully diverse community of foster carers from all over the North East. As a result, we know first-hand that foster carers from lots of different backgrounds make brilliant carers.

Benefits of Fostering

Fostering is a fulfilling and rewarding role for those who choose to make it part of their lives. Being a foster carer is a vital and valued profession, but it's so much more than a 'job'.
