Welcome to
Child Care Bureau

With you every step of the way

Child Care Bureau (CCB) is an independent fostering agency that matches and places children & young people to fostering families across Worcestershire and the wider West Midlands. We are a child focused fostering agency and have a strong ethos of supporting out foster parents (carers) throughout each stage of their fostering role, helping them to care with confidence and experience every reward fostering has to offer.

We work in partnership with local authorities to match children & young people with fostering families. Depending on their experience, current needs, and future care plans, fostered children live with our foster parents for different lengths of time; sometimes on their own, sometimes with their siblings, often alongside their foster parent’s birth children. Child Care Bureau provides foster placements short-term, long-term, in an emergency, for respite periods, bridging between placements, sibling groups, parent and child, step-down, unaccompanied children & young people and those seeking seeking asylum.

Our mission and vision

Our mission is that every day we improve the lives of thousands of young people, their families and communities through relentless focus on caring and learning. Our vision is to build incredible futures by empowering vulnerable young people in the UK to be happy and make their way in the world. Together, these keep us focused on what really matters – children, the heart of everything we do.

A little extra help

Our foster carers have free membership to The Fostering Network, which provides a range of benefits including legal, accounting and tax advice, plus a counselling helpline, a medical and first aid helpline and more. They also receive high levels of support & supervision, learning & development opportunities, access and consultation to clinical psychology, and local carer coffee mornings and support group meetings. Child Care Bureau’s foster carers also have access to a range of wider package of benefits to include Max Cards, access to The Hub discounts, access to fostering specific home insurance. Being part of the Child Care Bureau family also means having access to family activities and events, in addition to events and activities specifically for fostered children & young people and foster carers children who live in the foster home.
