Foster children of all ages

Our foster carers look after babies, pre-school, primary age, teens and can support young people beyond 18.

Local training and support

Our team based in Flint will support you every step of the way. We look after you and your own children. You can also learn new skills and knowledge through our training program, held locally in Greenfield.

50% Council Tax discount

Flintshire County Council offer local authority foster carers who foster with us a 50% discount on their Council tax bill.

Payment and equipment provided

We will provide a fostering allowance to help cover the costs of caring for the child. As you develop your career in fostering, you will also receive a carer’s payment. We will usually provide all of the equipment that you require for the child, for example cots, car seats, beds etc.

Join over 120 local foster carers

You will also be supported by other local carers who have a wealth of experience in fostering children.
