Fostering and Adoption

Fostering and Adoption


Whatever your age, ethnicity or personal circumstances, fostering could be for you.

You don't have to own your home or be employed. The most important qualities we look for are that you have commitment, patience and the ability to share your life and home with children who need stability and security.


To find out more, or to apply to be a foster carer, go to our dedicated Fostering website


Adoptive parents come from different walks of life, just like the children in need of a loving home.  Our regional adoption agency, Adopt North East will be able to guide you through the adoption process.
