Fostering South Tyneside

Fostering in South Tyneside could be the most reward career you choose. If a career in caring for others has always appealed to you, then you probably have the drive and ambition to become a foster carer.

As an agency we try and do what’s best for each child we support. Children in care regularly have brothers and sisters, it’s important that we keep these children together. If you can foster siblings, then we’ like to hear from you. We also need carers with strong skills to support challenging behaviours. Many children in care have experienced trauma and we need carers who can help children to rebuild their lives.

Please contact Janet Clements our Enquiries Officer who is happy to take your call and answer any questions about fostering you may have. Our number is 01457 829 400.

Things to do in South Tyneside

Haven Point is a brand new, state of the art leisure facility at South Shields seafront, boasting a swimming pool, water slides, wave pool and children’s pool. Imagine all the fun you can have here.

If you prefer a quieter day visit South Marine Park which has beautiful walks, two children’s play areas – one which hosts a sandpit and diggers, or why not just stop for a coffee and cake at the cafe and maybe you will catch a brass band playing at the Victorian bandstand.
