Fostering Support Team

The Fostering Support Team recruits and trains people who live in the community who would like to look after children and young people aged 0-18 in their own homes. 

The children and young people need care as they can not live with their own parents. Foster carers are paid to do this work.

The team give: 

  • support and supervision to carers;
  • organise payment;
  • offer a training programme; and 
  • offer support groups.


To become a foster carer contact the team for an application pack, or look on the foster carers website. The section holds briefing meetings and training sessions before you become a full time carer. Dates of briefing meetings and training sessions are on the web site.
