Our service

At Shropshire Council, we have a team of experienced, reliable and caring social workers and support staff with many years’ experience of successfully placing children of all ages with foster families.

We believe strongly in finding the right homes for children needing a foster family, as well as offering an excellent service to our foster parents. This has resulted in us having an unrivalled reputation for retaining our foster carers year on year.

Our priority is to find safe, stable and caring foster families who can meet the needs of the children in our care. The fostering process is therefore rigorous, but you will be treated with fairness, honesty, respect and sensitivity.

Once you have been approved as foster carers, we work tirelessly to ensure you remain foster carers for a long time by offering a comprehensive range of training and support.

If you need more information, please feel free to contact us.
