Who can Foster a Child?

Becoming a foster carer is a never-ending journey which allows you to do something amazing, life-changing, and richly rewarding both for you and for the foster child/children who end up sharing your home.

As a foster carer, you make a commitment to open your home and your heart to children and teenagers from all walks of life – and with every young person bringing their own experiences, challenges, and personalities, we’re always looking for an equally diverse range of foster carers to join our network. That means we’re looking for…

  •       Single people
  •       Young couples
  •       More experiences couples
  •       Existing parents
  •       Should-be parents
  •       Same sex couples
  •       Divorced or widowed individuals

… and more. Provided you’ve got the heart and the patience to support, nurture, and inspire a foster child, then we’ve got the journey for you. 

To become a foster carer, you need to have a spare bedroom and the space in both your home and your heart for someone who, most likely, hasn’t enjoyed a safe home for a long time.

We welcome foster carers and surrogate parents from all industries, backgrounds, and lifestyles – with our comprehensive training giving you access to the all the information and resources you need to thrive in your new role. You will also be paired with a foster carer buddy to offer you 1-1 support every step of the way and will benefit from 24 hour access to our Calon Cymru Fostering team.

Foster care is an adventure that, for many families, gives them a chance to give back. There are so many children across Wales who don’t feel safe at home, and who have never known the simple beauty of a supportive home life – could you be the person to change that for them?
