Walsall Council are currently recruiting foster carers to look after local children. Could fostering be the right path for you?

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.

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

Truth be Told

Our newest film titled "Truth be Told" explores the world of teenager Carl and his carer and two young sisters, Toni and Leah cared for by a same-sex couple. This small snapshot into their lives gives a hint of their history and the reality of being a foster carer.

There was a Boy

Watch our short film titled "There was a boy" below. The three-minute film is both hard hitting and ultimately uplifting as it tells the story of Daniel and the two possible courses his life can take, one with the benefit of foster carers, and one without.


Watch our short film “Giants” which tells the story of Jack & Ellie, siblings who both go into foster care together. The film highlights the need for foster carers who can offer a home to more than one child so that siblings can stay together.
