We are not for profit fostering agency and wholly owned by Worcestershire County Council. This means that we only provide foster care placements for Worcestershire children meaning you are far more likely to be successfully matched with a local child or sibling group with access to a fantastic local support when you join our network of local foster carers. We are proud to call ourselves the Biggest Fostering Family in Worcestershire! Please enjoy learning more about our service and what you can expect from fostering with us below.
This website has been created by Worcestershire Children First Fostering at Worcestershire County Council, to provide information and support to people living in Worcestershire who are considering fostering. As a local authority we have a responsibility to find families who are able to care for children who need them. Without people coming forward to foster, we would not be able to provide our children with the positive future they all deserve – so we are grateful to everyone that enquires with us.
In Worcestershire we view our foster carers as our most valuable resource and are proud that we can boast long-serving, committed foster carers and staff. We need people to come forward who are determined, enjoy spending time with children and who are ready for a challenge.
We are passionate about improving the life chances of our children – and want to show you how you can make a difference to a Worcestershire child’s life.
