Support for foster parents in Wolverhampton


All you need to know about fostering

The Fostering for Wolverhampton Team know that fostering is a highly responsible and sometimes stressful job so we have support structures in place to provide help and advice when you need it.

We will allocate a Supervising Social Worker who will directly support you in your role as a foster parent, including 6 months of one to one buddying for new parents. Each foster child will also have their own Social Worker who will also provide help and advice where appropriate.

All foster parents will also receive support from or external provider Foster Talk. Membership of this support network will benefit the whole family. Benefits include:

  • 24 hour helpline

  • Education advisory service
