why choose us?

Here at Foster Wales Bridgend, we’re not just another foster agency. We’re part of a collaborative network of not-for-profit Local Authority fostering services across Wales.

We focus on the purpose, not profit of foster care and our team is dedicated to helping every child in our local area who needs us. We work hard to find a match that’s perfect for them, keeping them in their own community, school and near family if possible.

We believe in building secure, stable futures for every local child. It’s what matters most.

our mission

Right now in Bridgend there are young people and children who need our love and support, and your stable home.

They’re teenagers, young parents, toddlers, babies and siblings – all with their own stories to tell. But for every single child and young person, our mission is the same: to provide a brighter future for them.

our ways of working

Collaborating with you and the local community in Bridgend creates life-long connections. It’s how we choose to work. We’re confident in our team approach and feel working as part of your community makes all the difference to the children in it.

Every child we work with is different, and so too are our foster carers. So, as a team we celebrate the individual needs of everyone we work with. Our experience shows us this helps establish the best possible growth and development for every child.
