Why choose Mulberry?

We are a small independent Fostering Agency that has our carers and children in care at our heart.

We cover 27 local authorities in the Midlands and across Wales.

We offer comprehensive support to our carers throughout the process and into your fostering journey.  The training we offer carers helps both initially and going forwards.

Fostering

Just as there is diversity in fostered children, foster carers need to come from a variety of backgrounds and have different life experiences, skills and qualities to help meet the needs of children and young people in foster care.

The Process

Once you have decided that you would like to become a Foster Carer, the whole process usually takes approximately four to six months from your initial enquiry to approval.

Transferring Agencies

Transfer protocols guide the way in which fostering services should manage the movement of foster carers between fostering services.

Fostering Allowances

Fostering Allowances cover the cost of looking after a foster child and gives recognition to the work that carers do as part of the task of fostering.

TRAINING AND SUPPORT

Mulberry Foster Care views our Foster Carers as professionals and as such, we provide a comprehensive support package. Fostering is a difficult and demanding career so this is reflected in the weekly allowance you will be given when you have a child in placement.
