We need foster carers who can remain focused on the needs of the child or children in their care at the most stressful times in any child’s life.


Children who need to be looked after come from different backgrounds and this needs to be reflected in the foster carers who are available to us. 


Our aim in the Vale of Glamorgan is to make sure that all foster children are looked after in an appropriate environment to their needs and due to our ongoing recruitment campaign we are well on the way of being able to match children of all ages to appropriately skilled foster carers.



Our foster carers are supported throughout the fostering process and have access to support, 24 hours a day, every day of the year. The supervising social workers in Vale of Glamorgan Placements and Permanency team work directly with the social workers of the children being placed into care.


This means that there is an efficient exchange of information regarding each individual case and the needs of both children and carers are explored with each placement.
