A NEWLY launched fostering service is looking for people from Keighley district to consider becoming foster parents

CFS Foster Care provides specialist care for children and young people with high levels of need.

Robert Lunan, fostering manager at CFS, said: "We'll be seeking to achieve high standards for our children, our foster carers and the local authorities and commissioning teams who request our services.

“To achieve this we need experienced and skilled workers, a positive ethos and a strong emphasis on the power of teamwork to meet the goals we've set ourselves.

"Our success will be measured by the views and opinions of the young people, carers and local authorities we'll be working with. We're relishing the challenge."

CFS Foster Care is part of CFS Care, which provides support and accommodation for vulnerable children and young people.

Anthony Gallaher, operations director at CFS Care, added: "CFS Fostering Services is fully registered and ready to transform the lives of children and young people.

"Our services are tailored to meet the increasing demands placed upon local authorities, and we aim to provide and maintain the highest standards of care and support to some of the most vulnerable children and young people in society.
