Here we’ll run through the basic need-to-know information, so you’re aware of what we do and how we help our foster parents support local children.

better together

Foster Wales Ceredigion is your Local Authority fostering service and we work with the local community to keep children in the areas they know and love.

Support is at the core at what we do, whether for our staff, our carers, or the children in our care, and we collaborate and share knowledge with the other twenty plus dedicated not-for-profit Local Authority foster organisations in Wales to make sure we’re the best we can possibly be at what we do.

what makes us different

Unlike most fostering agencies who work in isolation, we’re part of the Local Authority system. This means we work as a nationwide collection of 22 teams across the country to help children entering the foster care system stay in the local areas they know and love.

With our national level funding, distributed at a localised community level, we aim to keep children near to their friends, schools, clubs and communities, even when they’re no longer living with their birth families.

Understanding, caring and doing what is best for each individual child is at the core of everything we do.
