5 Ways Christmas Might Be Different for Fostered Children - Freedom Fostering

For many, Christmas is a time of big grocery shopping trips, school plays, hanging festive decorations, lots of mince pies, Secret Santa presents, office parties and Christmas gift-buying for all the family.

It’s also a time for reflection on the past year and enjoying time with loved ones; as well as making plans for the New Year.

So how might the seasonal festivities be felt differently by children and young people who are living in foster care?

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.
