Fostering in Derbyshire


Live in the Derbyshire? We're looking for foster carers across the region, with a large local office in South Normanton! 

Thinking about fostering? We provide the training and support you need to take on the role. Team Fostering has a local team that recruit, train and support foster carers across the East Midlands, including Derbyshire. New foster carers are needed across the region and those who take on the role with Team Fostering will be rewarded with competitive rates of pay, learning and development opportunities and comprehensive support.

Unlike some agencies, Team Fostering is a not-for-profit, ethical and privately run fostering agency that invests all funds into foster carers and children, with no shareholders to pay out to. We're excited to be growing our Derbyshire fostering service and already have fantastic carers that report to our South Normanton office.

How is our money spent? At Team Fostering 60% of our income is paid directly to foster carers. 24% pays for support and training of Foster Carers and 14% goes on the costs of running the agency to our own high standards by providing the unique services that we do. A final 2% is retained to reinvest in cost savings and ensure agency security. Learn more about what it means to operate as a not-for-profit agency by clicking here.

If you live in in the region, you could offer a range of fostering types in order to meet the needs of children and young people placed in foster care:

  • Short term placements 
  • Long term placements
  • Short break care
  • Specialist placements

Fostering can be challenging but it is extremely rewarding, and we ensure that all of our foster carers receive the best support, among other benefits to help them through their journey. You can read about our support here.
