Fostering information events


We hold regular information events and drop-in sessions which can be a good introduction if you're considering fostering a child.

Find out about the fostering process, meet others who have already fostered children, and speak to someone from our fostering team about any questions, doubts or worries you may have.

Fostering in County Durham - carers' experiences

Carers Dave and Pat Cooper talk about their experiences of fostering children for Durham County Council.

If you are having problems watching this video (for example if you're viewing from an Apple device) you can watch it directly on our YouTube channel.
