Talk to us about Fostering

The Fostering team will be on hand at both events to answer any questions you may have about Fostering, and they will also be attending a number of other events throughout the summer.

You can find out what other events they will be at on our Fostering events webpage.

“Life-affirming. Rewarding. Fun. Challenging. Exhilarating.” When we asked Torbay’s local Foster Carers to sum up in one word what it felt like to them to Foster a child, these are some of the words they told us.

You can contact them on 01803 207845, email fostering@torbay.gov.uk or visit our Fostering webpages
