Any of us can foster

Any of us can foster a child or young person, if you have the capacity to care.

Foster carers are as diverse and different as the children they care for. They are ordinary people, the one thing they have in common is the caring instinct. 

It could be any of us that makes a difference in a child's life. 
Could it be you? 

You don't have to have all the answers straight away, it is a journey. At Fostering Wakefield, we're with you every step of the way. You'll become part of our wider team, working alongside social workers and teachers. Our training and support and network of foster carers means you'll always have help.  

With us, you'll get:

  • a dedicated training and development plan
  • support groups, wellbeing clinics, and mockingbird hubs
  • the emotional wellbeing team to help with challenging situations 

When you foster with your council you support your local community. We help local children and young people who need a nurturing, safe foster home.

‘Any Of Us’ is the sixth film produced by a partnership of councils and children’s trusts. To promote local authority fostering, the project is the largest fostering film collaboration. Over 80 participants from Northumberland to Brighton and Liverpool to Kent.
