Fostering is a way of providing children and young people with a safe place to live and a positive start in life when they can no longer live at home with their family. Our fostering team - Trust Fostering - offers a wide range of services and provides support and information to all those touched by fostering in Doncaster.
Fostering should not be mixed up with private fostering which is a private arrangement between parents and carers. If a child under the age of 16 (or 18 if disabled) is cared for by someone who is not their parent or close relative for a period of 28 days or more the parent and carers are required to contact the Trust, who must make sure the arrangements meet the needs of the child
Adoption is permanent and the adoption service provides support to prospective adopters and children waiting to be adopted.
