Fostering

Fostering Service (fostering@kirklees.gov.uk) Last updated - June 2015

Foster caring can be one of the most challenging, yet enjoyable and rewarding things you ever do in your life. By becoming a foster carer, you are providing a loving, caring environment for children and young people at a time when they need it most.

We need foster carers who can care for children of all ages, but specifically you need to be:

  • Willing to care for young people between the ages of 13 and 17.
  • Prepared to undergo training and skills development in order to care for children with learning difficulties or challenging behaviour.
  • Flexible to help us meet the needs of the children in our care.
