Many people express their admiration for those who foster, and there is no doubt that our foster carers do a truly amazing job. Our foster carers aren't super human, they don't posses a special gene that makes them able to do this - they're real, everyday people, like you.
By choosing to be a foster carer with us you will help to transform the life of a child or children from Gateshead. It's not always easy but we truly appreciate the commitment of our growing family of carers. What they do makes such a huge difference. We could tell you so many stories but luckily, we don't have to. We're going to let them tell you themselves.
