Paul fosters a new role

Have your say

A SHEFFIELD-based fostering organisation has strengthened its management team with the appointment of an assistant director.

Team Fostering, which provides foster care across South and West Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, has welcomed former council senior manager Paul Dempsey to the post, which oversees all aspects of fostering provision.

Mr Dempsey’s move to the not-for-profit company follows nine years at Barnsley Council, where he was strategy and service manager for children in care, which involved managing fostering around Barnsley.

His new responsibilities will include overseeing the services Team Fostering provides and recruitment of new foster carers.

Mr Dempsey, who lives in Nether Green, is a former graduate of Sheffield Hallam University.
