Could You Foster - Foster Carers Needed in Wales
Fostering is so rewarding, its the best thing we ever did since our children left home. Lynn and Jake
Could fostering be your next challenge?
Right now, more foster carers are needed all across Wales to provide a safe, stable home for vulnerable children and young people in your area. In north Wales we are particularly looking for carers in Wrexham and the Isle of Anglesey and across all of south Wales including Cardiff.
Fostering takes energy, enthusiasm and the willingness to make a full-time commitment to fostering. If you have previously fostered, have experience in working with children and young people with complex needs, or have relevant transferable skills then we want to hear from you.
There are many different types of placements we can offer to foster carers and some are listed here. For example we are looking for carers who can offer short breaks for families with children who have disabilities.
We are also looking for Parent and Child foster carers to provide a mum or dad and their child/ren a safe and secure environment for a while in your home; mentoring them and passing on your skills to help them become successful parents.
Foster carers for children and young people who have previously been living in residential care and who would benefit from the chance to live as part of a family in a fully supported fostering placement, are also needed.
A competitive and professional fee
24/7 support 365 days a year
