About Us

Hello and welcome to the Family Fostering Partners website.

By way of introduction, my name is Judith Rees, and with the support of family and friends I set up Family Fostering Partners in 2015. Having worked as a frontline social worker for many years (and subsequently in a range of senior roles) in both the public and private sector, I wanted to harness these experiences to create something special. Together with my dedicated team, we have built a fostering agency that truly puts foster parents and the children that they look after at the heart of everything that we do.

As a parent myself, I am passionate about the importance of children being cared for in homes that are safe and nurturing. Within Family Fostering Partners, we do not have foster carers, we have foster parents, and this very simple change of language will tell you much of what you need to know about our values as an agency. Our bottom line is that if a foster home is not good enough for our own children to live and grow up in, then neither is it good enough for anyone else’s children! These are the standards of care that we set for ourselves and for our foster parents and is one of the reasons why Family Fostering Partners have always been a Tier 1 agency on the current All Wales Fostering Framework (2020).

So, if you share our values and would like to work for an agency that supports and advocates on your behalf, leaving you free to do the hardest task of all – looking after vulnerable children, then please read on, because we would love to hear from you.

Our team of managers, link workers and administrators have worked in foster care for many years, and know what it takes to provide a high-quality service.

Our name, Family Fostering Partners, represents our belief that successful fostering is all about the way we work in partnership with our carers, our Local Authority customers and those entrusted to our care.

The expertise within our team means that we have consistently been ranked as a Tier 1 fostering agency in Wales, an accolade which is testimony to our excellent support and service. Being Tier 1 means a high demand for our placements and an opportunity to provide the best match between children and their foster carers.

By the way, if you are wondering about our logo, and what elephants have to do with fostering, the answer is simple. Elephants are considered to be great parents in the animal kingdom. Our logo not only sets us apart visually from other fostering organisations, but also represents our commitment to providing those in our care with the best family experience possible!
