There are five metropolitan boroughs in West Yorkshire: City of Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, City of Leeds and City of Wakefield. Each of these urban centres offers a range of period and modern architecture, and each offers a vibrant hub for expanding businesses.
Having many successful businesses in some of Britain’s most affluent and impressive cities provides exciting catchment areas in which fostering agencies in West Yorkshire can operate. However, this area of Yorkshire offers much more than just the thrills and attractions of city life.
West Yorkshire is also known for both its beautiful scenery and being surrounded by some of England’s most beautiful countryside makes this one of the most serene and sought after areas in the country. There is also a fascinating industrial heritage, which can be appreciated by visiting places such as the Bradford Industrial Museum and the National Coal Mining Museum for England near Wakefield.
There is so much to see and do in West Yorkshire. The historic town of Howarth was home to the remarkable Bronte sisters, whose books have been an inspiration to generations of readers. The Parsonage Museum, in the house where they lived and worked, is well worth a visit.
There are wonderful parks and gardens to walk and play in too. They range from Roundhay Park spanning 700 acres of rolling parkland, lakes, woodland, gardens and a mansion house to York Gate Garden in Leeds, which offers a small but inspiring one acre public garden.
And don’t forget, if you are fostering in West Yorkshire, you also have the wonderful Eureka! National Children’s Museum in Halifax to go to with your young person. West Yorkshire is the perfect place for family life.
With so much to offer, it’s no surprise that this beautiful area of England attracts families large and small. This means that fostering agencies in West Yorkshire have many potential opportunities for achieving successful and happy outcomes for children.
