Inside Fostering: Behind the Scenes of Fostering

Fostering with NYCC


Every year, Fostering North Yorkshire looks after around 340 children at any one time, in fostering placements across the county. They range from babies to teenagers, come from many backgrounds and have various needs, but they have one thing in common - they are all looking for a caring family to help them feel safe, secure and happy.

In a four part documentary broadcast on Yorkshire Coast Radio this February we examine every aspect of Fostering meeting the carers, the families, the young people and those from North Yorkshire County Council who keep the system running.
