Fostering in Pontypridd

Foster care in Pontypridd

Are you thinking of fostering a child or a young person in Pontypridd?

A commuter town in South Wales, which benefits from its rural surroundings and is just a half hour drive from Cardiff, Pontypridd offers the kind of lifestyle that allows commuters the freedom to separate their work life and home life, while allowing young people to feel safe and easily access larger cities and attractions.

House prices in Pontypridd are considered to be very affordable which, combined with the local education system which is subject to constant updating and improvement, makes the area ideal for both young and older families. And the benefits keep coming as you move from logistics into the lifestyle and attractions in the area.

The access to inner city life, the coastline, and the rural countryside gives those who live in Pontypridd the best of all worlds. As parents, the safety and security of the Welsh countryside blends perfectly with the opportunity for personal and professional development among young people – making Pontypridd somewhere where children and teenagers are safe and supported.

As a foster agency operating in Pontypridd and surrounding areas of Wales, it is the access to rural and city living which makes Pontypridd such an ideal location for foster families and surrogate parents. At Calon Cymru Fostering, we work directly with children who enter the foster system, matching them with the right home and placement for them. From short term placements to long term arrangements, our main goal is to empower each child to feel safe, secure, and supported in their new surroundings, with comprehensive training on offer to every foster carer.

In Wales alone, there are just under 5,000 children living with foster families – with this number stretching up into the hundreds of thousands when you look at the UK as a whole. And whether they come from trauma, dangerous surroundings, or abandonment, our job is to make sure that through the care of a foster family, each and every one of these children has a chance to change their own life path and forge a positive future.

As a foster carer, you will become not just a parent but a teacher, a mentor, a friend, a confidante, a shoulder to cry on, and the support system for the child or teenager in your care.

Pontypridd has something for everyone, with the cities, mountains, and beaches all within close proximity to each other – tied up in the community feel that foster children need.

This is Yvonne and Brian’s story.

“We’ve been part of the Calon Cymru fostering system for more than 18 years now, but every child who comes to us brings their own story, their own fears, and their own individual needs.

That’s why we create traditions, such as ‘The Family Tree’, which brings us together with our foster children every Christmas and lets us revel in memories of past Christmases with children who have been and gone. The tradition started with our first ever foster placement, three sisters, and is now something that every child living with us over Christmas gets to become a part of.”
