Barnardo's Cymru Better Place

Specialist foster care and supported lodgings

Are you able to help a young person who has had a difficult start reach a better place in their lives?

We are looking for individuals, couples or families who are interested in supporting a young person who can no longer live at home or is not ready to live independently. We are recruiting specialist foster carers and supported lodging providers across Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend. It is hoped that the scheme will be extended across South Wales in the near future.

To become a specialist foster carer or supported lodgings provider with Barnardo's Cymru Better Place you don’t need to have any professional qualifications in working with young people, simply time, understanding and a spare bedroom. Maybe you have supported young people or already are fostering.

Barnardo's is one of the UK’s leading children’s charities. Working with more than 200,000 children and young people and their families each year, we have broad ranging knowledge and expertise to draw on in the provision of our foster care and supported lodgings services.

While you support young people, we will support you.

We will provide you with a comprehensive training package, ongoing support and a very generous financial package while you are being trained and whilst a young person is placed with you. Make the difference.
