Midlands & North

My name is Jennifer Summers and I’m the service manager for the Midlands and the North region

Our service was established in 2001 and we have invested in three offices across our region in Derbyshire, Doncaster and Stockton on Tees. The experienced teams at these locations are essential in providing the local support to our foster carers.

“Our team is committed to maintaining professional standards and we strive to deliver the best possible practice. We are looking for a diverse range of foster families who can offer a safe home. What our carers can expect in return, is to be valued and respected members of our team.”

Our fostering families have 24/7 access to therapeutic training, support and guidance. If you join our team, you will earn fostering fees that recognise your skills as a carer and receive specialist support, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. You also receive paid holiday and comprehensive ongoing development. Our team is friendly, experienced and open. I promise you will have the best experience of working alongside us and together we can make a difference to children’s lives.

Our Midlands and North service has foster carers from:

  • Yorkshire, including Leeds, Bradford, Doncaster and Rotherham
  • Derbyshire
  • Nottinghamshire
  • Lincolnshire
  • Leicestershire
  • Northamptonshire
  • Staffordshire
  • Warwickshire
  • and surrounding areas.

We are actively recruiting in this area and looking for carers from Sheffield, Leicester, Coventry, Dudley and Stoke-on-Trent.

“The team at Five Rivers have welcomed me to my role and have been amazingly supportive. Communication is great and there are lots of training and networking opportunities.  Clear pathways for advice and help are provided. I always feel reassured that I can ask about for anything. I feel really positive about fostering with Five Rivers.” – Carer

“Foster carers continue to develop their skills through good and relevant training and regular support and supervision. They are valued members of the professional team.”– Ofsted
