Your Local Not for Profit Fostering Agency in Wales

Family Fostering Partners, in collaboration with the Welsh Government have been actively working to prepare for and to shape the future of fostering in Wales. The Welsh Government has proposed a range of policy decisions to improve the way in which social care is delivered in Wales. One of these changes is their intention to encourage fostering agencies to become not for profit fostering agencies.

At Family Fostering Partners we’ve been working closely with the Welsh Government, NAFP, and other organisations to prepare for, and to help shape, this new policy. Therefore, we’re excited and thrilled to announce that we are beginning the transition process to become a not for profit fostering agency.

Our commitment and values remain unchanged as we transition from a family owned and managed agency, to a not for profit. We are proud of our track record and the achievements of the children in our care and will continue to put children first whatever the legislation might bring. We will also continue to deliver the highest standards of training and support for our valued foster parents.

This is an exciting time for us, we’re looking forward to being able to become a not for profit foster care agency. Consequently, there has never been a better time to join our family of Foster Parents, whether you’re completely new to fostering, or whether you’re already an experienced foster carer and looking to join a not for profit fostering agency.
