Currently, we arrange care and support for around 1,381 children and young people, and we need more local authority foster carers to help us.
By fostering for the local authority you ensure that 100% of the council's financial resources go into supporting Leeds children. It is the council's ambition to place all Leeds children with Leeds City Council foster carers.
"Leeds City Council fostering service is a strong service that provides good outcomes for children. It is well managed by an authority that is committed to its continued improvement. A significant investment of resources and management input has resulted in significant improvements and demonstrates a strong capacity to improve further".
As of November 2013 we are only recruiting carers in the following area's:
- households who have 2 - 3 bedrooms available for sibling groups (all ages, short term and long term)
- households who wish to foster children aged 7/8 plus on a 'long term basis'.
- households who wish to foster teenagers on a 'short' and 'long term basis'.
