Current carers

Are you a foster carer with a different agency? We’d like to hear from you!

We offer unparalleled, 24/7 support, on your doorstep in Doncaster, with exceptional training and competitive rates of pay. Through Mockingbird our way of fostering is different to any agency in the area, with a community of foster carers ready to welcome you to our fostering family.

We're part of Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, the organisation tasked with providing social care for children, young people and families in Doncaster, which means we receive referrals for fostering placements before any other agency in the area. Fostering with us means you’ll have the chance to put your fostering skills into action straight away, as well as having more and knowledge about the children who you’re going to provide care for and the support you need to care for them.

We know that fostering isn’t about the money, but understand that fees and allowances will form part of your decision making in choosing a fostering agency. At Trust Fostering our rates of pay are competitive, and we offer the chance to progress through training to gain higher payments when looking after children or young people with more complex needs and by contributing to the wider fostering community.

Over and above fees we offer unparalleled support. Our dedicated fostering social work team are based in Doncaster town centre and offer 24/7 support when you need it. Mockingbird means you become part of the fostering community, with somewhere to turn to when you need guidance from someone else who has been in your shoes, or just need a break. The Doncaster Foster Carers Association (DFCA) is there to offer lots of events and activities to Trust foster families as well as a weekly youth club for you and the family to go to. The DFCA can also help you raise ideas and comments with Trust Fostering, meaning you can be more involved in how we do things.
