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.

Vickie Oldroyd, Mockingbird Manager for Trust Fostering said: “The UK’s leading fostering charity, The Fostering Network, started Mockingbird in the UK in 2015 and we were part of the pilot.”

We are joining forces with Doncaster Safeguarding Children Board (DSCB) and other partners from Public Health and RDASH to promote National Safer Sleep week, next week, March 12-18.

Around four babies a week still die from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) – commonly known as cot death - and it is believed that if more parents were aware of safer sleep advice, lives would be saved.
