two girlsWe're not holding our usual information events because of the current situation with COVID-19.

We're still recruiting foster carers and you can find out more about being a foster carer. Our foster carers receive weekly fostering payments with additional allowances and get full training and support.

Foster carers can offer short or long-term homes, ranging from single-night emergency stays to placements which last for several years.

To find out more, email: fostering@derbyshire.gov.uk or tel: 0800 083 77 44.
