Do you have the dedication to make vulnerable young lives better, and a spare room? Have you considered a career with Fostering Devon?

We are currently recruiting new Family Care Workers with safe and stable homes to provide for young people in Devon who can’t live with their birth families.

Devon’s Family Care Worker Scheme offers round-the-clock specialist care for young people between the ages of 8 and 15 with challenging needs. You will receive exceptional support and training, generous rates of pay and an incredible sense of satisfaction.

It’s a big decision for any family to make but we’re confident that you’ll find that the rewards are definitely worth it.  If you think you have the skills and compassion needed, please do get in touch for an informal, in confidence chat.

We are currently recruiting mainstream foster carers in Exeter for 11 – 18 year olds. We are also looking for more Family Care Workers and DYPAS carers across Devon,  please keep checking our website for updates.
