If you are interested in being a foster carer please click on the external link to our adoption and fostering recruitment website (at the right hand side of this page).
We urgently need foster carers to make a real difference to the lives of children and young people in Leeds.
Currently, we arrange care and support for around 1,450 children and young people, and we need more local authority foster carers to help us.
We have introduced a payment for skills service providing a range of professional support, financial assistance and training for our foster carers in return for the invaluable service and support you give to our children and young people.
You can find out more about who can foster, the range of opportunities available and our payment for skills model on the related pages below.
If you are interested in fostering for Leeds, please call us.
You can also fill in a form online, just click the link for the Leeds Adoption & Fostering website to the right.

"Mel (20) and James (21) want to prove they can be good parents even though they both had a difficult start in life. Mel had an unsettled childhood living in the care system from an early age, but her life turned around when she went to live with foster carer Jean, who has been a powerful and positive influence."
