Why not consider Parent and Child fostering with Leicestershire County Council? This can be a young parent and their child who need your guidance, skills and experience to get through an emotional time in their lives. You will care for, support and empower them to develop their parenting skills. 

Leicestershire County Council's Parent and Child carers receive £660 per week (tax-free) as well as complete support, training and guidance from our experienced specialist team. 

If you are able to be at home full-time, have a spare room available and relevant skills and experience that could help you to make a difference to Leicestershire lives, then we'd really love to hear from you. 

Our Parent and Child foster carers benefit from:

  • Full assistance from a dedicated team, with a 24/7 telephone support line.
  • Regular support visits from social workers, health visitors and other professionals, where you will be part of a multi-disciplinary team.
  • £660 a week tax-free for this hugely rewarding role.
  • Specialist training, ongoing support and peer support groups to guide you in your role.
