Fostering in Wales

Whether you’re completely new to fostering or are already an experienced carer, we’ll provide you with all the support, guidance, and training you’ll need to help change a young person’s life.

Family Fostering Partners is an independent fostering agency that specialises in recruiting and training foster carers to look after vulnerable children. We work with children and young people across a range of ages from toddlers to teenagers and with a variety of short-term and long-term needs. 

We are proud to be a leading foster care agency in Wales! We have been ranked as a Tier 1 agency on the All Wales Framework four years running, an amazing achievement that has been earned by the dedicated team of link workers, staff, foster parents, and of course the incredible young people who bring so much to our foster care family! 

Can you help make a difference? 

According to The Fostering Network, 4,870 children were living with foster families in Wales as of 31 March 2019. This is 71 per cent of the total 6,845 children who are in care and looked after away from home. As you can see, foster families are extremely important in ensuring all children across Wales receive the care they deserve. 

Every year, hundreds of new foster families are needed in Wales to meet the demand of vulnerable children and young people entering the care system. Family Fostering Partners is driven by a duty to provide the very best care to children across the region who desperately need love and support. To do that, we are reliant on amazing people like you joining our team! We are actively recruiting kind, caring, and willing people in the Wales region to become carers and make a huge positive impact on a young person’s life and future. We believe you can foster!

Types of Fostering 

No two children are the same, therefore there are many different types of foster care. Similarly, every carer is different too! Children’s needs vary greatly and we understand that yours do, too! We will work with you to help you decide which kind of placement would be the best for you.
