Description

The job itself

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is recruiting self-employed foster carers to care for children aged 8 - 18 years old. Foster carers will need to be assessed and once approved you will receive an allowance for each child in your care. You will be provided with comprehensive support and your own dedicated social worker to offer you practical and emotional support when you need it.

We welcome enquiries from people of all religions, races, genders and sexuality. Our foster carers reflect a wide range of circumstances and life experience - for example, you may be married, single, in a relationship, divorced, widowed, employed or unemployed - we assess every application on an individual basis.

You must have at least one spare bedroom at the time of your application and have the time and energy to meet the emotional needs of a child or young person.
