Fostering – Make a Living, Make a Difference


In Calderdale, we need new foster carers to provide a loving, supportive and caring home to children currently in care.

As a foster carer you will make a big difference to a child’s life. Children will always remember and value the best care they receive which makes fostering one of the most rewarding jobs you can do. We will offer you a full range of support and guidance, as well as a financial package that will help you plan your daily life. You will receive support from the fostering team, including an allocated social worker.

  • regular training opportunities
  • contact details of existing foster carers so you can share your experiences
  • access to a range of support groups

For more information and to register your interest, please contact 0845 245 6000 or visit
