About Us

Who we are

Abacus Fostering is an independent Birmingham fostering service dedicated to providing foster care across the Midlands region. Specialising in fostering in the Midlands, we welcome a huge variety of foster carers from a range of backgrounds and provide dedicated and tailored training to suit the needs of vulnerable children and young people in the Midlands area.

What we do

Abacus Fostering recognise the importance of matching children with the right foster carer for their needs and take great care to select individuals with the skills to achieve and sustain a supportive and nurturing relationship. We aim to provide excellent quality foster placements to children and young people and continually strive to place vulnerable children and young people in nurturing home environments that will offer them a chance to participate in a positive family life.

Becoming a foster parent

It takes a special kind of person to take on the responsibilities of fostering. If you’re patient, understanding and positive, you’re already well on your way to becoming a successful foster carer. Abacus Fostering will provide tailored, quality training to teach carers of any age (above 21), gender or cultural background. With positivity and determination, together we know we can succeed. If you think you have the qualities necessary to take on a child in need, enquire with Abacus Fostering to find out how you can become a foster carer.

Why foster a child or young person?

Hundreds of children across the Midlands require a safe and secure environment where they are offered the support and guidance they are missing. If you are willing to open your home and heart to a child or young person in need, get in touch with Abacus Fostering to find out how you can become a Midlands foster carer. We are currently recruiting foster carers in:

Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Leicestershire, Solihull, Staffordshire, Telford and
Wrekin, Walsall, Wolverhampton, Worcestershire, Warwickshire. 

In any situation, the best thing you can do is the right thing; the next best thing you can do is the wrong thing; the worst thing you can do is nothing.
