We believe you can foster
If you live in the North East of England and are interested in fostering a child, we're here to help. We cover the entire North East area, including Northumberland, Newcastle, Sunderland, Middlesbrough, Durham, Gateshead and Teeside.
Here at Barnardo's Fostering North East, our team of experienced, dedicated social workers will support you throughout the whole of your fostering journey. Our OFSTED grade is good.
The rewards are huge. Knowing you make a difference to a vulnerable child's life is something that will stay with you forever.
With activities and events where you can interact with other carers this may be the positive change you are looking for.
