Fostering champions

We are looking for fostering champions to help us recruit new foster carers for Nottinghamshire.

The best way for people to learn more about fostering and understand what it's really like is to have real foster carers sharing their stories and experiences. 

We already have some excellent champions, and we'd love to hear from more carers to showcase the different backgrounds, experiences, and skills you all have.

You could:

  • share your stories at information events for people interested in fostering
  • speak to prospective carers to provide support and insight
  • join in with media events and marketing campaigns
  • assist in pre- and post-approval events
  • be a mentor for a newly approved carer in your area

As well as it being rewarding and beneficial to your own experience and development, you will receive sessional payments for any champion activities you do.

If you are interested in being a champion, please let your SSW know or contact the recruitment team on
