Join our ‘Outstanding’ Leeds fostering team

We’re an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ independent fostering agency based in Leeds who are working hard to provide children in foster care with stable, nurturing foster families, so they grow into healthy, happy and confident young adults. 

As part of the Orange Grove family, we’ll get to know you and your family, as well as the children and young people in your care very well, so we can provide the local 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 child in your care with additional revision.

We’re looking for passionate and committed individuals to join our team of foster carers in Leeds, so we can build brighter futures for even more children across West Yorkshire – including Leeds, Kirklees, Huddersfield, Wakefield and Barnsley.

By phone

One of our team is available to talk to you over the phone to answer any of your fostering queries.
