National Fostering Group is the largest independent fostering agency in the UK with superb agency coverage across all regions – meaning you have the support of a team close to you.
One of the most established fostering agencies in Cardiff, we work with local authorities to place children and young people in homes where they can thrive.
As a foster carer with us, you’ll have unparalleled access to professional support and excellent free training in your local area. We want you to thrive too, being the best you can be in your role as foster carer.
On top of this, carers who are fostering in Cardiff have a large and active peer network that includes several local support groups.
I have been fostering with National Fostering Group for 15 years - that in itself speaks volumes. There's lots of support from the agency, supervising social workers and fellow carers and that's important to me.
We have regular local training courses, support groups and a carers' website, which you can access once you're an approved foster carer. We also meet socially for coffee mornings and lunch. Come join us - you know you want to!
Being a foster carer with National Fostering Group has been fantastic right from the beginning. They answered my questions, eased my concerns, and gave me the support I needed to get going.
Since then, they've provided fantastic support at every opportunity, which has allowed me to make a big difference to the lives of the kids I care for.
Hundreds of children and young people are awaiting foster parents in Wales. National Fostering Group has local offices across Wales including Cardiff, Wrexham, Swansea, Rhonda Cynin Taf and Newport, plus a North Wales support group hub in Rhyl.
