Private fostering – keeping children safe in Doncaster

Last Updated: July 3, 2015

Doncaster Children’s Services Trust is urging residents this Private Fostering Week (6-10 July) to help them ensure the safety and wellbeing of local children who don’t live at home with their parents or close relative.

Private fostering is when someone who is not a close relative cares for another person’s child for 28 days or more. Anyone involved in a private fostering arrangement is required by law to tell the Trust about these arrangements so that these children can be kept safe and their carers can get the support that they may be entitled to.
