Fostering in Walsall


Walsall Council need foster carers who can help keep children safe:

Foster carers in Walsall do a very special job.  They look after children in our borough who, for a variety of reasons, can’t live with their birth families.  Fostering with Walsall Council means that you will help children stay local to their schools, their friends and members of their family to maintain the relationships that matter to them.   This could be a short term arrangement while plans are made for the children’s future, or sometimes it can be for a longer period of time.

Becoming a foster carer with Walsall Council means that you can make a positive difference to a young person’s life and support them through challenging or difficult times.  The care that you offer really can make a difference.

Why Foster with Walsall Council?:

We will support you every step of the way!  We have lots of training to develop your skills and knowledge.  In addition to ongoing support from your supervising social worker there is also a dedicated Foster Carers Association who can help with a 24 hour support line, buddying scheme and social get- togethers.  There are also competitive payments and allowances to help you care for a child in your home.

Every child needs a giant in their lives to look up to.  Could you be a giant for a Walsall child?  Take the first steps on your fostering journey and contact us today.
