Here at Foster Wales Rhondda Cynon Taf, we’re not your standard foster agency. We’re part of a national network. We’re not-for-profit, and caring is what we do.

Why become a foster parent in Rhondda Cynon Taf? It’s about putting local children first, and making the commitment to do what’s best for them. We’re dedicated to working as a team with our foster carers to make this happen.

Our purpose is to build better futures for local children, and we do this by helping them stay in their local area when it’s right for them.

our ways of working

We’re not a distant organisation. We’re part of your community, and we fully believe in the importance of staying connected. We’re part of the fabric of your everyday life, and you can reach us whenever you need to.

We value the individuality of every child in our care, and know they each have unique needs. Our foster carers are unique too, so our role is to help them be the best they can be – simply by being themselves. We celebrate and grow their existing talents through expert support, training and guidance. It’s about doing our best, and being the best, for the children we care for.
