already fostering?

If you’re already fostering in Wales with another fostering agency, transferring to our team here in Bridgend is easier than you think. You may already be part of our wider team – if you are fostering with another Local Authority in Wales, you are part of Foster Wales.

As a collaborative network of 22 not-for-profit fostering services across Wales, we’ve got one shared mission: to support and empower all our foster carers, and in turn the children they care for. We work to create brighter futures for young people in your local area.

It’s an easy process of transferring from another foster agency to our Bridgend team, so if you’re looking to join us, here’s what you need to know.

how to transfer to us

It’s easy – simply get in touch with our local team.

We will then start the process of getting to know you, to see how fostering with us might work for you. If you’re happy to go ahead with the transfer, we’ll do what we can to help your move go smoothly.

why transfer

Each child in our care is at the heart of everything we do and we take our responsibility seriously. We’ll get to work making sure you’re matched with a child or young person that suits exactly what you can provide, who’ll fit into your home like a family member who has always been there.

With dedicated training and ongoing support, we’ll empower you to be the best foster carer you can be, helping you to improve the lives of children in your area.
