Interested in fostering in the East Midlands?

Do you live in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester or the surrounding areas? Are you interested in fostering? You could make an incredible difference to a child’s life by fostering right here in the East Midlands.

Foster carers do amazing work every day with children that are unable to live with their own families. Across the East Midlands nearly 5,000 children need a safe and stable home with a fostering family who can look after them for as long as they need it.

We need foster parents from a wide range of backgrounds, both couple’s and single foster parents - from any ethnicity, age or sexual orientation to help with the growing need to provide children with a caring and loving foster home.

If you are interested in fostering a child, get in touch with our friendly fostering team today.

Why join the Fostering People?

When you foster with us, you’ll be part of a local community of support. Our staff live within the communities we support and you’ll receive our highly rated 24/7 support.

You’ll feel part of our East Midlands team from the minute you become a foster parent with us.

Fostering People offer:

  • One of the best fostering allowances available
  • Monthly support groups and forums
  • Family events
  • Extensive training programmes

Fostering People is an independent fostering agency. This means we work closely with local authorities to find suitable foster families for children and young people.

If you’ve got questions about fostering or you are ready to start your fostering journey with us. Fill out the form and we’ll get in touch with you shortly.

Alternatively, you can call us on 0800 077 8159.

allowance - will I be paid between fostering placements?

Fostering Allowance & Benefits

Our commitment to working in local communities isn’t just limited to providing excellent support. We also offer our foster parents one of the best financial packages available.

Try our finance calculator to see how much your fostering allowance could be. Its simple to use, no difficult questions and takes just a few seconds to use.

Thanks to generous tax relief from HM Revenue & Customs, foster carers pay very little (if any) tax and National Insurance. As a FosterTalk member, you’ll have access to free tax advice and support.
