Speaking about the need for more foster carers in Doncaster, Trust Fostering head of placement services Belinda Cashman said: “Our foster carers help Doncaster’s children to stay living in Doncaster near the people and places that they know and love.

"However, to make sure we have enough homes for our children, we need more people who’ve been thinking about fostering for a while to get in touch.

“To help people decide if fostering is right for them and their families, we host monthly information events that provide people with the perfect opportunity to talk to our fostering team, as well as to hear the first-hand from our foster carers.”

Trust Fostering is part of Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, which delivers services on behalf of Doncaster Council.

They say foster carers will be a part of an experienced fostering community who are always on hand to offer advice and support.

Belinda said: “We are looking for people who can provide loving foster homes for babies, children and teenagers.

"We have single carers, same-sex couples, people with disabilities, all ethnic backgrounds and ages. The one thing all our carers have in common is they are great listeners and have endless care and love to support our children and young people.

“If this sounds like you, and you have at least one spare bedroom, we would love to hear from you.”

The next monthly meeting takes place online on August 19.
