Council highlights vital contribution of foster families

Every day foster families across Bridgend County Borough are providing fostered children and young people with a safe, loving and stable home. This commitment from foster families is more important than ever during the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak.

Council encourages LGBT+ adopters and foster carers

Bridgend County Borough Council will be supporting LGBT+ Fostering and Adoption Week by encouraging members of the local community who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other gender expressions (LGBT+) to consider adopting or fostering children in the county borough.

550 more foster carers needed across Wales in 2020

The Fostering Network has estimated that 550 foster families will be needed in Wales to keep up with the widespread demand. To combat this, Bridgend County Borough Council has launched, #20 Reasons, a campaign to encourage people within their local area to consider fostering.
