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.

Ahead of national Volunteers’ Week in June, a scheme that supports Doncaster children in care is asking more people to join them – and to have some fun along the way.

The Independent Visitors Service (IVS), run by Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, currently has 43 volunteers who help 46 young people – but says there are more waiting in the wings and that more men are particularly needed to support teenage boys.

Foster care fortnight will see a new Mockingbird Hub Home launched by Trust Fostering in Doncaster with local carers receiving a special message from The Mockingbird Society overseas.

A unique and innovative way of providing foster care, Mockingbird sees carers supported in building extended family networks that provides peer support, sleepovers, training and social activities.

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.”
