What our foster carers say about us...

Contact usWe consult with foster carers to find out what they feel is working well and what needs to happen next to further improve our service.  We believe that children and young people who are fostered deserve the highest standards of care and to receive a high quality service. 

The service offered by our foster carers who we work in partnership with is the key to ensure the best interests of the child are met.

When you think about fostering, what are you most proud of?"

We asked foster carers to tell us about what they are proud of about fostering and it was lovely to see such fantastic, positive comments which gave us a good picture of what fostering is about in Swansea.  Comments included;

"Seeing a foster child happy, safe and secure in a stable home"

"Giving older children a chance in life and helping them achieve their potential"
