Fostering North Yorkshire

Fostering North Yorkshire needs you!

We want to hear from people who could make a difference to the lives of children and young people across the county.

Fostering North Yorkshire is your local fostering service, and we’ve been supporting families across the county for over 35 years. We’re part of North Yorkshire County Council and our foster carers look after over 300 children a year. The foster carers come from a wide range of backgrounds and family make-up, but what they all have in common is their desire to provide a secure and welcoming home for some of the county’s most vulnerable children.

In return we offer the best training available and competitive financial packages with generous tax free allowances for each child or young person you foster. And we’re there whenever you need us, 24/7, 365 days a year.

Scarborough Pregnancy Crisis Centre

Scarborough Pregnancy Crisis Centre seeks to help those experiencing a crisis pregnancy. We offer a free pregnancy test and counselling, which is offered by volunteer counsellors, most of whom have experienced a crisis pregnancy themselves. The main focus is to allow the woman some listening space and time so she can really sort out for herself her best way forward, considering several options, and avoid making a quick decision which she may later regret. A male counsellor is also available if required. The Centre offers baby clothes and equipment to women who need it, and advice on support agencies in the locality. Post abortion counselling is also available. Support is also available for those who have experienced miscarriage or baby loss.
