Further information

We need new Foster Carers to join our team so that we have the right people to look after vulnerable children in Gateshead. Some children need homes for a weekend or a few weeks, whereas some children need to stay for months, years or even longer. If you have fostered before and would like to return, or if you have ever thought about then now is the time to take the next step.

We offer a weekly fostering fee as well as a child allowance, a high-quality training and support package and career progression.

If you

- are aged over 21 and live within a 20 mile radius of Redcar & Cleveland
- are patient, understanding, tolerant and resilient
- have the time, energy and space in your home (including a spare bedroom) to look after children
- would like to use your skills in a new way and develop further skills
- can provide a safe & secure environment in your home

Then contact us for further information. Simply call the Fostering Service on 01642 7776924 or email FosteringDutyTeam@redcar-cleveland.gov.uk
