Orange Grove Fostercare: Leeds
West Yorkshire Fostering Agency
We’re looking for passionate and committed individuals to join our Leeds fostering team, so we can build brighter futures for even more children in foster care across West Yorkshire – including Leeds, Kirklees, Huddersfield, Wakefield and Barnsley.
We’re a friendly and established team, delivering a tailor-made service that’s centred around the needs of our foster parents and children. This includes;
- Regular supervision with your very own dedicated social worker
- A mentoring scheme for new foster parents
- 24/7 support line with a qualified social worker
- Access to additional support from a family support worker
- Regular training and development opportunities
- Monthly foster parent forums so you can listen to and share fostering experiences
- A calendar of events to give you the chance to socialise with other foster families
Recognised as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for two consecutive inspections, we have extensive experience of delivering the very best quality foster care to children and young people.
Our Personal Approach
As part of the Orange Grove family, we’ll get to know you, your family and the young people in your care very well, so we can provide the support and training you need, whenever you need it. We achieve this by allocating no more than twelve families to each social worker – which means they’ve got more time to support you.
You’ll also have access to a family support worker, who can provide your family with any additional support you may need. Whether that’s taking a child in your care to the cinema, while you spend some valuable time with your own children or helping a foster child with additional revision.
