Adoption and Fostering
Nottinghamshire County Council is always keen to hear from people interested in adoption and fostering children in their care.
Could you make a real difference to a child’s life by offering them a safe and loving home?
When you adopt a child you take on all the responsibilities and rights for the child that the birth parents had; you are the child’s permanent parent.
More information about adoption is available on Nottinghamshire County Council’s website.
Could you offer a stable home to a child who is unable to stay with their own family?
There’s a growing need for more foster parents in Nottinghamshire with more than 800 children in council care.
They’re particularly looking for foster carers for children aged 11+.
Fostering 11+ offers:
- a guaranteed income
- generous tax exemptions
- excellent training and support
- a rewarding career
- an addition to your family
You’ll need to offer:
- home-based care
- a spare bedroom
- a good sense of humour
- experience caring for, or working with, older children either in a professional capacity or through your own experience of parenting
More information about fostering is available on Nottinghamshire County Council’s website or you can call 0115 8044 400 to speak to a member of the county’s fostering team.
