Fostering live chat

We know that deciding to foster is a big decision and that you will naturally have plenty of questions. These may be regarding the process of becoming a foster carer, how we match a child with you and your family, or questions regarding the wider impact having a child come live with you might have on your home.

So that we can help answer as many of your questions as possible we've installed a live chat option on our website, by clicking the dialogue box in the bottom right of your screen you will automatically send a message to one of our experienced staff members who are at hand to assist and offer advice. No question is too big or small and there is absolutely no such thing as a stupid question therefore please don’t hesitate before dropping us a message. We have decades of experience in working with foster carers across South Wales from small villages in Pembrokeshire to the larger urban areas of Swansea and Cardiff, therefore whatever your question it's highly likely that we have heard and answered it before.

There are certain questions which prospective foster parents ask routinely, we have tried to answer as many of these as possible on our website, for example “Can I foster if I have pets”, “What are the different types of placements” and “Do foster carers get paid” but of course we can never answer every question and that's why having the live chat option is so exciting for us.

We try and be available to talk at all times of the day 7 days a week, however if on the rare occasion, we are unable to answer your message then there are plenty of other ways of contacting us. You can either email info@familyfosteringpartners.co.uk complete our info form below or you can phone us on 03300 948816. We are always delighted to hear from people who are interested in fostering.

Additionally, we welcome fostering inquiries in both English and Welsh therefore feel free to ask in whatever language you prefer, you can always change the language on our website by clicking on the flag icon in the top right corner of the website.
