Fostering Wakefield

Welcome to Fostering Wakefield

We’re looking for both new and experienced foster carers to help make a real difference to children’s lives across the Wakefield district by providing a child with love, stability, and a safe environment, at an important time in their lives.

In return you’ll be introduced to what many of our foster carers say is the most satisfying and worthwhile job they’ve ever done.

You don't need any special qualifications, it's your experience and outlook on life that's most important – what we’re looking for are people who can help make a real, positive difference to a child.

At Fostering Wakefield there’s also no such thing as the ‘typical’ foster carer. We welcome enquiries from people of all religions, races, sexualities, marital statuses, and backgrounds.

We strive for the best possible match for both the child and your family. That means we work hard to identify areas like shared interests, pets and hobbies that will help build a bond and rapport between your family and the child. 

With us you will also receive a competitive financial package, locally based training and development opportunities, support for you and your family, alongside a range of benefits. 

So, if you could welcome a child or young person into your heart, your home and your family and give them the love, care and support they need, please get in touch.

Call us for a chat on 0800 197 0320 or fill out the below enquiry form and we’ll get in touch with you.

You can also visit wakefield.gov.uk/fostering in the meantime to find out more information.
