Cookie Consent by Fostering - Norfolk County Council

Welcome to Norfolk Fostering Service

Fostering is caring for children and young people aged 0-18 in your own home, on a short or long-term basis. It involves fully welcoming them into your family and lifestyle. We currently need high-quality foster carers. We will work closely with you to discover which types of foster care and what sort of child would suit your lifestyle and experience. Our looked after children are always matched to the most appropriate family.

By becoming a foster carer, you are making a commitment to help children and young people who have experienced trauma and stressful experiences. We will offer you extensive support and training. In return, we will give you a generous caring allowance for providing a stable and secure family home.

Why become a foster carer?

You can make a real difference to a child's life.

Foster carers help children to cope with difficult, traumatic and stressful experiences. They can help children develop, thrive and achieve their potential.

Foster carers can receive a generous allowance and care for children within their own home.

"These children have been through so much, and you get to watch them blossom and come to life - that is a great thing."

Roni, foster carer
