Swiis Foster Care Midlands was set up in 2002 and is largely managed by qualified social workers with a wealth of experience in social care. They work tirelessly to provide excellent foster homes for children and young people, enabling them to be cared for and encouraged to reach their full potential.
Becoming a foster carer is a life-changing experience. We appreciate it is a big decision to make and we are here to provide exceptional support through a dedicated team of Midlands foster care specialists. Swiis provides carers with the highest quality training and resources to develop their knowledge and skills.
If you become a Swiis foster carer, you will receive a competitive fostering allowance, paid weekly, directly into your bank account. Swiis is one of the most generous and competitive agencies in the market because we recognise the exceptional value that our carers bring to the children and young people they look after.
We currently have five Local Carer Groups based in Birmingham, Stourbridge, Walsall, Staffordshire and Telford/Shrewsbury, giving our new foster carers plenty of opportunity for finding a group close to their home.
These groups are for foster carers to get together and support each other, whether this is just to talk about their experiences of fostering or share transport or childcare for meetings and training. The lead person in each of our Local Carer Groups is called a “buddy” and they are the main contact for the group.
We offer foster carer training in our main office in Edgbaston in the West Midlands which is a short walk from Five Ways train station. The venue offers good access to Motorways and the City Centre and has adjacent parking and wifi.
We also provide a Telford training facility in the heart of Telford, approximately 1 mile from the train station, within easy access for anyone living in the Shropshire/Wolverhampton area. This location is adjacent to the shopping centre and offers lots of parking in the area.
Areas Covered Include:
Dudley | Coventry | Birmingham | Walsall | Wolverhampton | Sandwell | Warwickshire | Carmarthenshire | Stoke on Trent | Shropshire | Solihull | Staffordshire | Worcester
The office also covers cases in Oxfordshire and Camden, and we have carers located in the Bromsgrove and Leicestershire areas.
