Foster Wales is not-for-profit. We are about people. Our purpose is to support and empower foster carers and build the brightest possible futures for local children – not to make profit.

You may already be fostering with us. If you’re currently fostering with your Local Authority, then you’re already part of Foster Wales! You’re part of a national network of 22 Welsh Local Authority fostering services, all working together towards the same goal.

If you’re not fostering as part of your Local Authority, you can transfer to us. It’s so easy! Here’s everything you need to know.

why transfer

Every child who needs a foster carer is the responsibility of their Local Authority – and in Cardiff, that’s us. So, it’s not only our passion but it’s also our purpose to provide the highest level of care for local children and their foster families.

We support you to be the best you can be, making sure you enjoy all the rewards fostering can bring. Your growth and wellbeing matter to us, and that’s why there are so many opportunities to train and develop in your role as a foster carer. We’re beside you at every step with support, and encouragement too. We’re dedicated to offering the best: for children in our care, and our foster carers.
