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 West Midlands 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
