A New Year brings opportunities to improve your life for the better and this year your resolutions could also improve someone else’s.

Every day foster families from across Doncaster help children to stay living near the people and places they know and love. But we need more people to foster!

Trust Fostering, who deliver fostering services on behalf of Doncaster Council, are looking for 22 new fostering families in 2022. The team are looking for people from across the borough who can make a difference by beginning a new adventure into foster care. Searching across the borough, the team want to find people who can to open their heart and their homes to children and young people of all ages.

It’s a big decision to foster. That’s why our Trust Fostering team, who deliver fostering services on behalf of Doncaster Council, host regular information events giving you the opportunity to find out more about what’s involved in becoming a carer as well as the 24/7 support and training offered by the team.

The next online event will take place on Thursday 20 January, from 7pm to 8pm or come and visit the team in person in the EPIC hub in the Frenchgate, every Tuesday from 11am to 2pm. The events are a perfect opportunity to speak to the team and hear from the Trust’s experienced foster carers.

Nigel Turner, Fostering Recruitment lead said: “At Trust Fostering we have the children and young people at the heart of all we do, so we are on the lookout for potential foster carers who can do the same.

Fostering is a very rewarding role that brings a new little personality into your home with all their wonderful quirks that you will soon learn to love.

These young people will fill a space in your heart, that you never knew was missing and in return you get to be there for those monumental moments that help develop a young person’s life - a feeling like no other.”

If you are aged over 21, have a spare bedroom, the commitment, time and love to care for a child, fostering could be for you.
