Fostering Children

Fostering children is a valuable and rewarding thing to do.  It can change both your life and the life of a child for the better.

While death and illness can sometimes take away parents, the majority of children who are looked after in Wales are in care because of abuse and neglect by the people who they trusted to protect and nurture them. This is why we need you. We are an independent fostering agency and we work with the local authorities across South Wales. We need more carers to help meet the demand for the many different types of foster care we provide.

Recruitment is an ongoing process. Our team relies on having enough good, well-trained foster parents available so that we can continue to provide the support and special service that South Wales needs. We provide you with generous financial benefits, training, and social worker expertise for any difficult situation that might arise.

There are myths about who can foster, what foster parent actually do, whether foster carers get paid, and how much foster carers get paid. People gather their knowledge in bits and pieces and all too often information is inaccurate or misleading. Simply described, fostering provides a safe and secure family environment for a young person who has cannot live with his or her parents. A foster carer temporarily assumes many aspects of the parenting role.

To learn more about becoming a foster carer why not contact us for further information. You need to be 21 years of age and have a spare room. For your application to be approved, you will undergo an assessment process including police, health, and home checks. Just give us a call on 01267 232228 or drop us an email to info@familyfosteringpartners.co.uk
