Fostering in Wakefield

There has never been a better time to become a foster parent in Wakefield.  Did you know there are 79,000 children in foster care, of which over a ¼ are Black and Asian.

Cultural & faith based fostering in Wakefield

Our goal is simple - to give every child we care for the best start in life with foster parents who can provide not only a caring home, but by meeting their individual cultural and religious needs right here in Wakefield and the surrounding area.

We recruit foster parents from all faiths and every ethnicity because we believe every child deserves to grow up in a loving, nurturing family home – somewhere they can feel valued and have their own identity.

That’s why we’re one of the only independent fostering agency providing bespoke cultural and faith-based foster placements.

Could you offer a safe and stable home to a child in Wakefield for as long as they need it?

Why is ACS right for you?

We are a multi-cultural fostering service, we have White, Black and Asian foster parents which enables us to specialise in providing cultural placement matches for children of faith and non-faith.

Our Wakefield multi-disciplinary team come from a diverse range of backgrounds and we believe that by passing on our knowledge and experience to you, you’ll be able to make a vital difference to children in need of foster care. We are committed to offering all the support you need to succeed.

We hear all the time from fostering applicants, how they have been turned away from other fostering providers, because of their commitment to church or mosque attendance.  Here at ACS your faith will be treated with respect.  We welcome people of faith, which had led to a truly diverse team.  We also welcome people of no faith, who foster with us, because they appreciate our great family feel and our culture for respect, openness and tolerance.

  • Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ Support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
