Could you be the future of fostering?

We need foster carers who can keep children and young people safe.

Foster carers perform a very special role within our community. They look after children who, for a variety of reasons, cannot live with their birth families.

Becoming a foster carer with Walsall Council means that you can have a positive impact on a young person's life and support them through often very challenging times.

Could you be the person who makes the difference? Make the first step on your fostering journey and contact us today.
