In Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly we are looking for people to provide, safe and loving homes for children and young people in care.

Foster carers can help some of the most vulnerable children, providing them with guidance, stability and love.

Fostering Fortnight - 16th-29th May 2016.  We are holding an informal drop-in evening on Wednesday 25th May from 6pm-8pm, at New County Hall, Truro, TR1 3AY. There will be members of the Fostering Team and Foster Carers for you to speak to, so please come along if you want to find out more about becoming a Foster Carer.


At the moment, we are particularly looking for people who can care for older children, teenagers and also those who can provide a long term home for a child as a permanent foster carer.

Find out more.

John is a young person in foster care in Cornwall. He says:

"My foster carers are amazing. They treat me with so much care and they truly do love me as much as I love them. I see them as my family. I wouldn't be as confident in myself if I wasn't in foster care…it gives me confidence and happiness."
