About us: 

Gateshead Fostering Service is a well established local authority agency with vast experience of placing children and approving foster carers. We have children waiting to be fostered now. We are a professional and friendly team offering a highly personalised service with an allocated social worker to support applicants throughout the whole process.

By choosing to become a foster carer you can make a huge difference to a child’s life – and yours.Talk to any of Gateshead’s foster carers and they’ll tell you about the rewards and satisfaction fostering gives them. Helping to make even a small difference to a child’s life is hugely gratifying.

We believe that all children and young people have the right to be healthy, happy and safe, to be loved, valued and respected; and to have high hopes for their future.

If you have room to spare in your home and a lifestyle that has room for a child, then why not foster a child in Gateshead? In return we can offer payment for your skills, access to relevant training courses and a range of support from our team of specialist staff. Find more information about fostering on our website.
