Foster in Dorset

2nd July 2018

Could you offer a stable home to a child or young person who really needs it? Help them feel safe, loved and protected?

Dorset County Council is looking for foster carers from all walks of life. You can foster whatever your age (over 21), and you can be single or living with a partner of any sex.

Fostering offers many choices, from the ages of children, to whether you’d like to foster full-time or for short breaks.  It’s a chance to make a real difference to a youngster’s life, and there’s also the opportunity for the carer to learn new skills.

Foster carers are paid a weekly fee for their work, as well as an allowance for each child they foster. Training, support and career progression are available.

Why not chat to one of the friendly team to find out if fostering is for you? Visit, call 01305 225568, or email
