Fostering in Barnsley

If you’re not sure whether fostering's for you, our  information sessions are a great way to learn more about the fostering process before you make any decisions.

These relaxed and informal sessions give you a chance to chat to members of the fostering team about anything you're not sure about and to meet other people who are thinking about fostering.

We offer virtual information sessions; dates for these sessions are posted on our Fostering Barnsley Facebook page.

To request an appointment please contact us on our Facebook page, email fostering@barnsley.gov.uk or call (01226) 775876.

What our foster carers think

"We needed to know more about fostering to help us make a decision, so we went along to one of these sessions.  

People made us feel really welcome and talking to the team about some of our concerns really helped. We feel much more comfortable about the process now. Really glad we went."
