you can foster in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan

There are children across Cardiff and the Vale right now who cannot live with their birth families. Young people who need someone to listen. To believe in them. Children who need someone on their side.

This someone could be you.

Whether you’re married or single, whether you own your home or rent it, whatever age, ethnicity you are or sexual orientation. By becoming a foster carer with Foster Wales Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan, you can help children to stay in the local community, support, guide and nurture them.

Fostering is one of the most rewarding things you can do.

already fostering?

You may already be fostering. If you’re not fostering with a local authority, transferring over to us is really straightforward. Get in touch and we will support you to transfer to us.

I love having the opportunity to look after these children and giving them chances that they may not have had. The highlight for me has got to be seeing their faces for the firsts, their first ice cream, first Christmas when they had presents and taking them to Disney. Our social worker is amazing too; nothing is too much trouble. When she comes round it’s like having a friend round for a cuppa
