why choose us?

Foster Wales isn’t your standard foster agency. We’re the national network of not-for-profit Local Authority fostering services across Wales. 

Why choose us? It’s about choosing purpose, not profit. Foster Wales is dedicated to working as a team with foster carers to build better futures for local children by helping them stay in their local area when it’s right for them.

Building better futures for local children is what we’re all about. It’s what matters most.

our mission

There are children all across Wales who need us, and need you too. 

They are babies, toddlers, teenagers, siblings and young parents. Their stories are unique, but for every single child our mission is the same: to create a better future.

our ways of working

We work together to build better futures for local children, and connection and collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. 

We’re not a distant organisation. We’re part of your community. Part of the fabric of your everyday life.

Each child is an individual with unique needs. Our foster carers are unique too, and our role is to help them be the best they can be by being themselves, making the most of their existing talents and supporting their growth and development with every step.
