Welcome to Telford & Wrekin fostering services

Our desire to keep children safe and to continue to make a difference to a child’s life or a sibling group is emphasised during this time of national and international crisis. The coronavirus pandemic brings many challenges for all parents and especially those caring for other people’s children. We are managing this day-to-day with our dedicated social care teams and supporting our amazing foster carers, keeping everyone informed.

We will continue to take your enquiries if you would like to talk to us about becoming a foster carer.  We will consider all options available to us under government guidelines during the pandemic to welcome you to Telford Fostering.  As soon as we are able to, we will look forward to welcoming you in person.

We have many types of fostering that could appeal to you that give you the opportunity to make a fundamental difference to a child’s life and future. The Telford Fostering team are here to help you make the right decisions as you embark on your fostering path.

Your future and a child’s future can change with one phone call. Call us today to discuss your opportunity to make a difference

Help us keep Telford children local.

If you would like a chat about the different fostering opportunities, please complete the enquiry form and we will ring you. You can call the recruitment team on 01952 387387 and will do our best to answer your call. Please bear with us during this time if we are unable to answer straight away. 

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.
