Foster for Staffordshire County Council

If you are based in Staffordshire and interested in becoming a foster carer, then look no further than your local authority. 

We need foster carers throughout Staffordshire, including Stafford, Stone, Lichfield, Rugeley, Burton-on-Trent, Cannock, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Leek, Cheadle, Biddulph,Tamworth and all the surrounding areas.

Join our fostering family and we’ll provide you with all the training and support you need so you can concentrate on caring for our children.

With over 1,200 children in care there is an urgent need for more families to join us. Did you know that all the children who need to be fostered are in the care of the local authority and we always prioritise placing children with our own foster carers first before contacting private fostering agencies.

Types of fostering

There are lots of different types of fostering from full-time to short break breaks and also supported lodgings. We’ll help you find the right type of fostering to suit you and your family.
