fostering in monmouthshire

We believe in working together to build a better future for all the children in our local area.

We’re Foster Wales Monmouthshire, part of the not-for-profit national network of 22 Welsh Local Authority fostering services.

Fostering is about making a difference to a child’s life, to enable them to reach their full potential. We work hard to provide a high quality service to children and young people by providing our wide range of foster carers with all the training and support needed to meet their needs.

This can be anything from an overnight stay or short break, to more long-term placements. No two children are the same and neither is the care they need.

“Yes, they (children) can bring a lot of challenges, and there may be some times when you think, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do now’, but you do work it out! You don’t need to know everything, because the training that you get is excellent.”
