Five Rivers has provided foster placements from our Derbyshire office since August 2001 and we recently moved to new offices in a central location in Chesterfield.

We have excellent links with Local Authorities and access to therapeutic services for the children placed with Five Rivers.

Currently we provide foster placements in Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Leicestershire, and we are recruiting new foster carers in all those locations.

We are looking for Foster Carers who can offer a home to children and young people with complex behaviours, particularly for ages ten years plus and sibling groups. We are also looking for foster carers to offer parent and child placements and homes for children with disabilities.

Our foster carers come from a variety of backgrounds and provide a good range of options for young people of all ages and experiences.

We offer our Foster Carers;

  • Specialist support, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day
  • A fostering fee that recognises carers’ professional skills
  • Consultation with qualified therapists and education staff
  • Paid holiday entitlement.
  • A comprehensive ongoing training and development programme
  • Opportunities for all our fostering families to come together
  • Additional support from family support workers
