Foster Swansea

Help keep families together. Foster Swansea needs more parent and child foster carers. Can you help to change lives?

Parent and child fostering - woman and baby

Parent and child carers receive a payment of £689-£1,063 per week.

If you can offer a secure and stable home to a child and one or both parents, on a short term basis, then you are just what Foster Swansea is looking for.

As a parent and child foster carer, you will receive:

  • specific training to develop skills
  • weekly visits by a dedicated social worker
  • 24 hour telephone support line
  • access to experienced foster carers

Foster Swansea will work with you to support and encourage a parent to care for their child, safely and lovingly.

Come along to one of our events where you can find out more information:

  • Wednesday 15 January, 6.00pm-8.00pm at Civic Centre, Oystermouth Road

Or, call us on 01792 533212 or email


About us

Foster Swansea is the local authority's fostering service, and aims to provide high quality placements for children and young people who, through no fault of their own, can no longer stay with their birth families.

Placements are provided via our in-house foster carers who play a vital role in creating a stable and loving family environment so children and young people can reach their full potential.
