Foster care plays a vital part of the care system here in the United Kingdom. There are over 77,000 children currently in care and this number is rising. There are many reasons why a child may require foster care in the West Midlands. Sometimes it may be because of a birth parents illness, or a temporary problem within the family. Some children who require foster care in the West Midlands will have experienced domestic violence, or may have witnessed drug and alcohol abuse. Other children may have been abused or neglected. As a private West Midlands fostering agency, we recruit ordinary people who can offer a safe and loving home to these children through a variety of different fostering placement types.
