Welcome to Fostering Devon

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 foster carers across Devon to care for 0 – 18 year olds, including children with disabilities. We are looking for dedicated people with safe and stable homes to provide care for young people in Devon who can’t live with their birth families.

We are particularly keen to hear from prospective carers with the knowledge and skills to provide for young people with complex and challenging needs. If you have the relevant skills this could extend to Child and Parent fostering or young people on Remand. We are also looking for DYPAS carers who can provide a safe and nurturing environment for 16 and 17 years olds who need to develop independent living skills.

All our foster carers receive exceptional support and training as well as competitive rates of pay. Fostering is a big commitment for any household 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.
