Foster Care Fortnight 

Foster Care Fortnight #FCF2020,  11 – 24 May, is an annual event led by The Fostering Network, and supported locally by Torbay Council. While this year it will be unlike any other with the current COVID-19 shutdown, if you’re interested in fostering we need you more than ever here in Torbay.

In Torbay we have improved the fostering offer (raising the weekly rate from £400 to up to £538 depending on experience and the age of the child you are supporting and a new £1,000 Resilience fostering payment for at looking after at risk children).

We Are Family! : Be part of the team and foster a child in Torbay

Local foster carers call fostering a “privilege” and a “gift” – they say when you decide to foster in Torbay you become part of a community. 

With peer support groups, friendships with other foster carers, support from Torbay’s Fostering team, child psychologists and more – you’re never on your own when you join Torbay’s Fostering family.
