Ever thought of fostering children?

Closed 10 Jun 2022

Opened 20 May 2022


The Northumberland Foster Care Team want to understand what barriers people who would like to become foster carers are facing.  

If you would like to foster, but currently don't, please let us know why you have not enquired, or if you enquired to become a foster carer, why your enquiry could not continue.

Why your views matter

We really need more people to come forward to foster children living in Northumberland.

Your input will help us identify the barriers you may have faced in becoming a foster carer.  It will help us to make improvements and changes to help reduce the key barriers.

We thank you in advance for your participation, which will help us to improve support for children in care in Northumberland. 

What happens next

Once the survey has closed, our management team will review the responses and findings for feasible actions and improvements.

If you have requested contact, or asked a specific question, we will get back to you as soon as possible.
