Support young people and create a loving foster family

Calderdale Council needs more foster carers, and there are many benefits and a wide range of support available for people who choose to foster for the Council.

In Calderdale, like the rest of the country, there is a shortage of local foster carers to care for children and young people of all ages. In the Council’s latest campaign, Calderdale foster carers have been speaking about their experience of fostering with Calderdale Council.

Fostering for Calderdale Council is not-for-profit.  The safety and wellbeing of the child or children involved is the main priority and we want to find loving families in the Calderdale area who can enable a young people to remain close to their existing friends or birth family.

There are many reasons why people choose to foster – it could be the perfect way to rethink your career or work-life balance, but most importantly, the decision to foster could make a huge difference to a young person’s life.
