Your Care May Be All a Child Needs to Thrive
Become a foster carer with Freedom Fostering and get the support you need to give a child the life they deserve
A Fostering Agency that Doesn't Feel Like an Agency
We may not be related by blood, but by choosing to foster with Freedom Fostering, you are joining our fostering family. You have a chance to create positive experiences for a child that will last a lifetime. And impact their future.
It doesn’t matter if the child stays with you for a day or years. He or she is now family. At our core, “family” is where we put all the emphasis – strengthening the bond between the child and the carer.
Who We Are
Based in Wolverhampton city centre, Freedom Fostering is one of the leading independent fostering agencies in the West Midlands, serving much of central England.
We started in 2002 and have since expanded to cover neighbouring counties such as Shropshire, Staffordshire and the East Midlands.
We are an outstanding service.
A Devoted Support Team
Raising a child can be challenging at times. This is why we promise you 24/7 support and a dedicated social worker. You don’t have to worry about important questions or requests not getting addressed in time. We’re always here to serve you.
Foster Carer Training
We want you to succeed as a foster carer. So we will offer the most up-to-date specialist training.
Generous Monthly Allowances
Your enthusiasm and love for fostering are the most important things you need to make a great foster carer. But we can’t downplay the increased financial demands. This is why we offer generous allowances to help you meet the financial needs of raising a child.
Fostering is an opportunity to give something back to the community by providing a safe and nurturing home for children who can’t live with their parents at a point in time.
There are currently over 80,080 children in care, a number which has steadily increased over the past seven years. Over 72% of looked after children are placed within a family environment, and as a result, the demand for high quality foster carers has never been so great.
