Become a foster carer in Sandwell

Fostering in Sandwell

We are looking for people to become foster carers in Sandwell and support young people to reach their full potential.

Sandwell is made up of six towns – Oldbury, Rowley Regis, Smethwick, Tipton, Wednesbury and West Bromwich. Around 600 children live in care in Sandwell. This could mean living in children’s homes, supported housing, or with friends and family, but for most it means living with foster carers.

Choosing a fostering agency

St Christopher’s is a children’s charity with a long history of supporting young people from all walks of life. With our staff by your side and our specialist training under your belt, you can create a brighter future for a child or young person.

Our local fostering office is based in West Bromwich, so you won’t have far to travel for training, support groups, or even if you just want a chat with someone in the team.

Take the first step to being approved as a foster carer today – enquire about fostering with St Christopher’s and one of our friendly team will get back to you as soon as possible.

'There is such a need for voices for children, they’re desperate for people to look after them. It is challenging but the rewards far outweigh it. With hindsight, I wish I had done it sooner!'
