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.

how to transfer

Simply get in touch with our friendly team here at Foster Wales Ceredigion and let us know about your desire to transfer to us.

We will then work with you to see whether we are a good match and, if you decide we are, we will support you in making the transfer.

why transfer

Every child who needs a foster carer is the responsibility of the Local Authority. So, for many, it makes sense to work with the Local Authority system, Foster Wales.

Beyond this, we’re a not-for-profit organisation with the mission to help local children live happy, safe and stable lives. We’re based in the community, so we have a detailed understanding of the challenges that may arise, and all the local support services on hand.

So, if you’re passionate about helping children maintain a sense of identity when leaving home, through maintained connections with the area they know, we could make a great match!

We’re here to help you make a real difference in young peoples’ lives.
