Durham County Council Fostering Service

In County Durham, we need foster carers who can provide children and young people with the love, security and stability that family life can offer.

There are lots of reasons why children need foster carers, often it's because of problems at home and they need someone to look after them while social workers and other professionals are working with their family.

Foster carers are needed to care for children for a few nights, weeks, months or even the rest of their childhood, supporting them into adulthood.

Fostering is fun, fulfilling and hugely rewarding. Although it can also be exhausting and frustrating, most of our foster carers say it is the most satisfying and worthwhile job they've ever done.

Find out more about fostering, meet other foster parents and have your questions answered by our fostering specialists. www.durham.gov.uk/fosteringinfoevents
