Picture of Sarah, fostering adviser

“We believe that children and young people in Rotherham should grow up with the right support to allow them to be healthy, safe and achieve their potential in life. We can't do this on our own. Having more Rotherham Council foster carers means more children are cared for here, in their hometown.”

- Sarah, Fostering Adviser

Fostering stories

"You're doing some good and because we’re doing it in Rotherham - we're doing it for Rotherham children - that to me is everything. I couldn’t do it any other way."
