Join the friendliest fostering agency in Leeds

At Orange Grove, we’re an Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ independent fostering agency, committed to ensuring every child across West Yorkshire has the chance to live a normal, happy childhood, including Leeds, Kirklees, York, Bradford, Huddersfield, Halifax, Wakefield and Barnsley.

We’re a friendly, driven team that strives to achieve only the best outcomes for our young people, and we do this through the power of relationships.

Leeds and the surrounding areas are vibrant, friendly places, and we carry that through into how we work at Orange Grove.

We’re a diverse bunch, welcoming people from all walks of life to join our community of carers. It doesn’t matter if you’re single, married, gay or straight. What matters is your passion and commitment to giving children in care a brighter future.

In return, you’ll be fully supported by a team of professionals, including a dedicated social worker, family support worker and 24/7 help when you need it.

If you think you could give vulnerable children a stable, loving home when they need it most, please consider fostering in Leeds with Orange Grove.

We urgently need hundreds more foster families to take care of children who are currently waiting for a home like yours, where they can heal, grow and make positive steps forward.

There aren’t many requirements to apply to foster a child. All that we ask is that you: 

  • Are over 21 years old
  • Have the legal right to live and work in the UK
  • Have a spare bedroom that's always available to a child
  • Can offer a stable, loving home to a child

Finally, we build strong relationships with local authorities and other partners to ensure we’re all doing the best job we can for children in care.

So, whether you’re looking to take your first steps towards fostering or you’re an experienced foster parent in search of a more fulfilling experience, why not join our Leeds fostering family? Together, we can build brighter futures for even more children in care.

About us 

Orange Grove was founded in 1996 by two social workers who understood that building and nurturing strong relationships held the key to successful fostering. And this has been at the heart of our philosophy ever since we were first set up over 25 years ago.

We have offices all over the UK, including our Leeds fostering agency, and around 400 children in our care. We’re committed to helping them all grow, heal and be hopeful for the life ahead of them.
