Tibshelf Council Annual Report
Annual Report 2018
From Derbyshire County Council
Do you think you could give a child a stable and happy home to help them have the best start in life?
If the answer is yes then Derbyshire County Council wants to hear from you.
Across Derbyshire there are currently around 430 foster homes offering support to 630 children in care.
Foster homes are particularly needed for older children and sibling groups and the care offered can be short or long-term, ranging from single night emergency stays to placements which last for years.
The council is also interested in hearing from people with previous caring experience who may be able to offer contract care foster homes to 11 to 18-year-olds with complex emotional and behavioural needs.
Derbyshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People Kevin Gillott, said: “We’re here to make sure all our looked after children live happily and healthily and have all the care and support they need.
“We’re proud of the excellent foster carers we already have and are keen to recruit more.
“Becoming a foster carer can be very challenging and mean a lot of hard work, but it brings enormous rewards.”
Derbyshire County Council offers its foster carers lots of benefits, support and training as well as competitive financial allowances.
