Could you make a difference in a child's life?

Welcome to Trust fostering

Trust Fostering is delivered by Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, a not-for-profit organisation set up to deliver social care and support services to children, young people and families. 

We are passionate about improving children’s lives and making fostering fun.

We know fostering can be very challenging. That’s why when you foster with us you won’t be fostering alone. You’ll be a part of a big fostering family made up of experienced foster carers and social workers who all want our young people to lead happy, safe and active childhoods that allow them to go on and achieve their dreams as adults.

Members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community are being encouraged to consider fostering or adoption this LGBT fostering and adoption week which runs from Monday 5 – Sunday 11 March 2018.

Sue May, Head of Service for Looked After Children at Doncaster Children’s Services Trust said: “We know people can worry that they won’t be approved as foster carers or adopters because of their sexuality; this is an unfortunate myth and something that we want to dispel.”


 “We love seeing their characters open up while in our care.”
