Worcestershire Children First Fostering

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.

Everyday children in your local area enter care and need fostering families. We’ve worked together with 34 local authorities to create this short film to highlight to you the great rewards that fostering can bring. As Local Authorities we are working closely together to deliver the same message due to the national need for more families to foster, especially fostering teenagers. This short film highlights the journey of fostering families, the difference you could make to a young persons life and the significant adult you could become for them.

Giants

Giants is a short film that focuses on the story of Jack and Ellie; a brother and sister who want to stay together when they find themselves in foster care. The story highlights a key issue in fostering: that of working to keep brothers and sisters together and the need for more foster carers who would consider caring for siblings.
