We are actively recruiting foster carers to look after children who come into care here at Telford & Wrekin Council

We are always looking for just the right people to become our foster carers, and currently we are looking for mainstream carers, respite carers and people with houses with enough bedrooms to take sibling groups. We are also looking for experienced carers who could take disabled children and mother and baby placements.

Go up to the menu button and read though the pages about fostering and if you think you have the qualities we are looking for - we want to hear from you.

If you’d like a chat about fostering, you can call the recruitment team on 01952 387387, or you can complete an enquiry form and we will ring you.

We know it’s a big decision, so we won’t apply any pressure but we will help you to make the right decision for you, your family and our children.
