Experienced carers needed to foster young people in Derbyshire

Have your say

Experienced carers are being recruited to join a specialist fostering scheme.

Derbyshire Council is looking for people to foster children aged between 11 and 18 years old with complex emotional or behavioural issues.

An information evening is to be held at County Hall, Matlock, on Tuesday, November 11 from 4.30pm to 7pm.

Council cabinet member for Children and Young People, Kevin Gillott, said: “We have children coming into our care who have had upsetting or difficult times in their short lives.

“We want them to have the childhood and teenage years they deserve – and you can help us give them that.”
