We put children at the heart of everything that we do. We are looking for loving families who can provide a warm, nurturing and stable home for a child or sibling group.

About us

Within Cornwall Council’s Fostering and Adoption Service, children are at the heart of everything we do.

That’s why we offer unique 24/7 support to all foster carers and adoptive families. We offer the best possible care and guidance for the children in their families – no matter what their background and life experiences. We provide ongoing training and development. Adopters have lifelong support from the specialist Family Plus Team.

Here’s what some of our families have to say about us:

Our Social Worker is our first port of call for any issues, large or small, and they visit regularly. The community (they put) around you and the child really makes you feel that you can make a palpable difference to a child’s life.”

As always, I was able to speak to someone from the Family Plus Team immediately. You provide support where and when we need it. I feel that we are cared for as a family.”

At Cornwall Council, we are driven to help children and young people achieve their full potential and we recognise the extraordinary love, commitment and stability that foster carers and adopters give.
