The staff at Freedom Fostering are delighted to have partnered up with two local organisations in the Midlands. The first of which is Willenhall Road MOT and Service Center who have kindly offered a 10% discount for all of our foster carers to use for their MOTs, services and any other additional work they need on their cars. This is a great opportunity to ensure the safe transportation of our children and families.

What a lovely quote to celebrate The Fostering Network

14/05/2022

Social Media has completely changed our world over the last decade or so as roughly 58.4% of the world's population have a social media account. Despite how useful social media has been to keep us all connected, it has also caused lots of users to struggle with their mental health as they develop FOMO, compare themselves to others and stay glued to their phones for updates.

Read our blog to learn more about why social media is so addictive and what you can do to combat those anxious feelings you may have about social media.

Our Story

Freedom Fostering Limited is an independent Fostering Agency, established since 2002 and based in Wolverhampton. The company was formed in order to deliver a service for children based on the principles of high quality foster care and effective support systems.


Over the years Freedom Fostering Limited have sought to develop our services by recruiting and training foster carers who reflect the aims and beliefs of the founding directors; along with Fostering Network, we believe that all children and young people needing substitute care, whatever their physical or mental abilities, should have the opportunity to live in a family.

Children and young people of any background who are fostered deserve the highest standards of care, and it is the responsibility of all those involved to deliver a high quality service.

We provide training services to help new foster carers develop the skills they need to become a qualified carer; training occurs every six months for six sessions, to ensure carers are kept up-to-date with current legislation and to refresh essential skills required to foster.

We cover a wide spectrum of central England - our main areas include:

• Wolverhampton
• Staffordshire
• Birmingham
• Telford
• Milton Keynes
• Shropshire
• Solihull
• Walsall

Our staff and managers are extremely passionate about giving foster children the very best care available, and if you share our beliefs we would love you to help us achieve our dream. Give us a call to ask about fostering a child you could make a huge difference to a child's or young person's life.
