We believe in working together to build a better future for all the children in our local area.

We’re Foster Wales Blaenau Gwent, part of the national network of 22 Welsh Local Authority fostering services.

Fostering is about making a difference to a child’s life, to enable them to reach their full potential. We work hard to provide a high quality service to children and young people by offering our foster carers all the training and support needed to meet their needs.
