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.

The festive classic, 12 days of Christmas has a new spin on it as Doncaster Children’s Services Trust Fostering sings to highlight the need for at least 30 more foster carers in 2018.

Trust Fostering and adoption teams and Mockingbird hub carer, have stepped out of their comfort zones to spread the word about the Trust Fostering services’ need for at least 30 new foster carers in 2018.


A group of enthusiastic foster carers have set up shop in Frenchgate this week to encourage potential new carers to take up the role.

The carers who foster for Trust Fostering – the fostering service run by Doncaster Children’s Services Trust – have volunteered their time to promote fostering and talk to the public about the benefits of being a part of the Trust’s fostering family.


If you like Trust Fostering on Facebook and follow us on Twitter you will have hopefully have seen our Christmas campaign; the 12 days of Trust Fostering Christmas. We’re using the Christmas carol to highlight not only the 12 things we’re proudest of at Trust Fostering, but also the 12 things that make being a part of our fostering family different from anywhere else. These are:


Providing foster care with his wife Eileen for over forty years, local foster carer Ian Lindley has been recognised for his dedication and commitment to looked after children in Doncaster, receiving an MBE at Buckingham Palace this month.


Yesterday, Wednesday 29 November 2017, saw the fourth Mockingbird constellation launched by Trust Fostering in Doncaster.

Since 2015 the Trust are proud to have been delivering Mockingbird; an alternative fostering method which can help improve placement stability and safety. Through Mockingbird our foster carers are better supported than ever before, and children and young people in care are finding themselves in increasingly permanent and supportive family homes.


Trust Fostering, the fostering service run by Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, is searching for a number of paid, specialist foster carers to join the innovative Mockingbird programme which has been running in the borough since 2015.
