Abacus Fostering provides foster care for children and young people across the following regions:

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

Or offices are open normal working hours 9am to 5pm.  After this time the you will be diverted to a social worker who will deal with any referrals and be responsible for matching and risk assessment.

A key task during our matching and risk assessment will always be ensuring that any carers we match with children and young people have the right skills and attributes to meet the child or young person’s individual needs.

Abacus Fostering will always ensure that where time and circumstances allow, children and young people, parents (where included) and social workers have the opportunity to meet with carers before deciding if they would like to proceed with the placement.

Abacus will work with Local Authorities to achieve outcomes for children in the five areas specified in Every Child Matters:

  • Be Healthy
  • Staying Safe
  • Enjoy & Achieve
  • Make a Positive Contribution
  • Achieve Economic Well-Being
