Fostering a child can be a hugely rewarding experience. Whether you are thinking about fostering, or you are an experienced foster carer we would love to be part of your fostering adventure.

Right now there are amazing children in Middlesbrough who really need a safe and caring home, maybe it’s you who can make a real difference to their lives?

We believe all Middlesbrough children have the right to grow up feeling loved and supported. Fostering a child from Middlesbrough and giving them a home where they can stay in touch with friends and family and in a familiar school where they are supported by their teachers is every child’s right.

We will be there to support you 24/7 on every step of your fostering journey and offer a wide range of benefits which recognize your skills and the valuable contribution you make to children’s lives.

Find out more about our children and if fostering is right for you, or if you are ready to start your journey and change a child’s life, get comfy and take your next step. Fostering for Middlesbrough is part of Middlesbrough Council’s fostering service. You will be redirected to Middlesbrough Council’s website where you can view and complete the Council’s foster carer enquiry form
