Newcastle Fostering Service is looking for foster carers in the North East to join our team and provide stability, security and support for children of all ages, backgrounds and different needs. We need carers who can provide long-term, short-term and short break care for teenagers, sibling groups, children with disabilities and children from black and minority ethnic backgrounds.

In return, we offer you all the support and training you need with financial packages of up to £400 per week, per child.

We welcome applications from all sectors of the community in the North East, so you could be pleasantly surprised. All you really need is a big heart and plenty love to give. We recruit foster carers from within a 50-mile radius of Newcastle upon Tyne.
