Why we need foster carers

Cardiff currently has almost 900 cared for children. These children come from a variety of backgrounds with a wide range of needs. This means we at Cardiff Council need foster carers that are as vibrant and diverse as our young people themselves.

At Cardiff Council we strive to keep children close to their families and communities wherever possible.

There are some recurring themes that result in the children/young people being placed in our care. These can include:

  • Their parents may have additional needs such as mental health, drug or alcohol-related problems that affect their ability to properly care for them.
  • They may have experienced relationship problems and tensions at home.
  • They may have experienced neglect or abuse at home.
  • They may have been an unaccompanied asylum seeker child.

We need foster carers of every kind in Cardiff but particularly those who can help support:

  • teenagers,
  • disabled children and young people,
  • brothers and sisters – we keep families together if we can, and
  • children and young people from black or ethnic minority groups.

Thanks to the ongoing support and skills of our fantastic foster carers, Cardiff’s cared for children can look forward to a bright, healthy and happy future.

If you’re interested in learning more about fostering or are ready to take the next step into becoming a foster carer, get in touch- we’d love to hear from you!
