Fosterline Wales factsheets

As part of the Fostering Excellence programme in Wales, Fosterline Wales is developing an online information hub which will increase the provision of information, advice, and support.

Fosterline Wales is run by The Fostering Network and funded by the Welsh Government. It is an independent and confidential advice line for the public on all matters related to fostering. You can call Fosterline Wales on 0800 316 7664 from 9.30am – 12.30pm Monday to Friday.

Fosterline Wales factsheets complement the current telephone service by providing information on a range of topics that have been frequently asked by foster carers, social workers and other professionals.
