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

We are proud to be Outstanding

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.

Volunteers’ Week, which runs from Saturday 1 June to Friday 7, is an opportunity to say thank you to all those people who give of their time to help others, as well as being a chance for others to think about joining a scheme.

A couple from Doncaster, who have helped and supported over 100 children as foster carers, were this week praised for their life-long commitment as they retire from fostering aged 80 and 81.

Ian and Eileen Lindley first began fostering in 1992 and have provided a home to children who cannot live with their birth families ever since.

As specialist foster carers they have supported vulnerable children facing a range of challenging circumstances, welcoming all into their care and significantly improving their life chances.

The search is on to find over 100 volunteers to be mentors to vulnerable children and young people across Doncaster.

Colleagues at Doncaster Children’s Services Trust are looking for people to spare just two hours a month to help a child or young person raise their aspirations and try new experiences.

Pupils aged 9 to 18 from schools across the borough will be part of the ‘Trusted Mentors’ project, which is being funded through the Department for Education’s Doncaster Opportunity Area programme, following research into the positive impact mentors can have on young people.
