So, why choose Foster Wales Blaenau Gwent for your fostering journey?

We’re the national network of not-for-profit local authority fostering services across Wales, meaning we work directly within your community – where it matters most.

We believe it’s about choosing people, not profit. We’re 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 brighter futures for the local children of Blaenau Gwent is what we’re committed to.

our mission

There are children living in Blaenau Gwent who need some extra support. They need caring, patient foster carers like you to help create a better future for them.

From babies to teenagers and toddlers to siblings and even young parents, every one of their stories is unique but our mission is the same: to help them build a positive future.
