Fostering in Neath Port Talbot is all about connection, with a dedicated network of carers and our teams providing expertise, professional support and guidance whenever you need it.

better together

We’re able to offer the level of support we do because we’re part of Foster Wales: a collaboration of 22 Local Authorities across the country. Everything we do is for the people in our community, and that’s replicated across the country too.

We continuously work as a team – because we know we’re better together. Everything we do goes right back into making us better at what we do, allowing us to give more, where it’s needed most.

what makes us different

We’re not just another fostering agency. We’re a national initiative with a local outlook.
Our service and our focus is centred around the children and families in our communities.

Our national funding is distributed at a localised community level, which means we can aim to keep children in our care within the Neath and Port Talbot communities where they have been raised. That means they’re near to their friends, schools, clubs and extended families which gives them the best possible chance.

Understanding, caring and doing what is best for each individual child is at the core of everything we do.
