Fostering and Kinship Services

Fostering in Worcestershire LogoMaking the decision to foster a child is one of the biggest, but one of the most rewarding decisions anyone can make. We know that caring for children is a tremendously important task and we aim to guide you through the journey you will take if you decide you want to foster a child.

The best part about fostering is knowing that you are making a positive difference to a child or young person’s life. You will be helping them to build a better future, by providing care and support at a time when they need it most. Being a foster carer is no easy task; children can be distressed, demanding and despondent. They are likely to have complex histories and to have come from troubled backgrounds.
