Fostering North Yorkshire

Fostering North Yorkshire needs you!

We want to hear from people who could make a difference to the lives of children and young people across the county.

Fostering North Yorkshire is your local fostering service, and we’ve been supporting families across the county for over 35 years. We’re part of North Yorkshire County Council and our foster carers look after over 300 children a year. The foster carers come from a wide range of backgrounds and family make-up, but what they all have in common is their desire to provide a secure and welcoming home for some of the county’s most vulnerable children.

In return we offer the best training available and competitive financial packages with generous tax free allowances for each child or young person you foster. And we’re there whenever you need us, 24/7, 365 days a year.

We are a new support group specifically for parents and carers of children with additional needs and/or disabilities. Covering Malton (and surrounding area) plus Pocklington, Stamford Bridge (and surrounding area), the group was set up to be a place parents/carers could access support, advice or just to vent, but also as a way to meet and make friends with people who understand how hard life can be at times. Regular group meet ups will be organised as the group grows.  Please find us on Facebook and request to join


We offer confidential emotional support to children, young adults and adults by telephone, email and post. We work with callers to develop healthy, positive coping strategies, an inner feeling of strength and increased self esteem to encourage healing, recovery and moving forward with life.

We also keep details of counsellors, agencies and support groups throughout the UK.
