Children in Care

What does being in care mean?

Being in care or looked after means that you don't live with your family for whatever reason.

No matter what type of care you live in, you can always find the opportunity to achieve in everything that you do.

The voice project

This is the place where you can have your say on issues that matter to you. We listen, so that we can make things better for the future.

U-pack information guides

The following U-pack documents explain the looked after system and what it's like to live with foster carers. They also give children the opportunity to say what they think:

Living away from home

Fostering service

Disabilities U Pack

Fostering and adoption

We are currently looking for foster carers and adopters from across Staffordshire.

The Staffordshire pledge

The pledge is a set of promises made by us to Staffordshire’s looked after children, young people and care leavers. This pledge shows how we promise to do this.
