Guide: Why choose Devon Fostering?


If you live in Devon then it makes sense to be working as a foster carer for Devon County Council’s Fostering Service – we are right on your doorstep so you can count on us to be here when you need us.

We need a diverse range of carers right across the county so we have the best chance of matching children with suitable families. We also try our hardest to find local foster carers so that children can stay in their own community despite being unable to live at home.

This means that children and young people who are fostered by Devon Fostering carers have better outcomes because they can stay close to their family and friends, and stay at the same school.
