Could you be the future of fostering?


Walsall Council are currently recruiting new foster carers! 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.
