Staffordshire County Council Fostering Service

Monday to Thursday 8.30am-5.00pm and Friday 8.30am-4.30pm

With over 1,100 looked after children, there has never been a greater need for more foster carers in Staffordshire.

Who are we looking for?

All our children are different; different ages, genders, ethnicities and personalities. But they all have one thing in common. They need stability, consistency and a loving family environment so they can develop and grow.

There is no such thing as a typical foster carer, we need people from all sorts of different backgrounds to care for children from birth up to 18 years. We always have a need for foster carers for older children and larger sibling groups - could you make a difference to a local child?

Fostering with Staffordshire is flexible and there are so many different types of fostering we are confident you'll find one which suits your family commitments and personal circumstances.

Foster for us and in return, you'll receive outstanding practical and social support to help your foster child to flourish and realise their potential.

Why not take your first step to fostering in Staffordshire by joining us at our next information meeting? You can either call 0800 169 2061 or book your place online, we look forward to meeting you soon!
