why choose us?

At Foster Wales Carmarthenshire, we set ourselves apart from other foster agencies. How? We’re the national network of Local Authority fostering services all across Wales.

So, why choose us? We’re all about people, not profit. We’re committed to working with foster carers to create better futures for children, and we’re a not-for-profit organisation – with all the funding we receive going towards improving our service. Our focus is to keep children in their local area, so they stay connected to friends and family. This isn’t something every agency can promise.

our mission

There are children across Carmarthenshire who need us – and the need you too. Each child has a different story, but our mission remains the same: to build a better future for them.

our ways of working

We work as a team to do the best we can for every local child who needs us, as well as their foster families. Connection and collaboration are embedded into everything we do.

We’re not a distant organisation– far from it. We’re part of your community, and that’s how we work.

Every child is different, just as our foster carers are. We strive to help them be the best they can by utilising their existing skills and supporting their growth and development.
