About TLC Wales Fostering
TLC Wales is an Independent Fostering Agency. We were established in 2001 specifically to provide family placements for children and young people with disabilities and complex medical needs aged 0-18 years.
TLC (Wales) is registered with the Care and Social Services Inspectorate if Wales (CSSIW) and is inspected on an annual basis, our last inspection had zero recommendations.
The inspector advised that “Foster carers report very high levels of support from the agency and their supervising social workers”.
TLC offers long-term, short term, shared cared, respite and parent and child placements for 16 authorities across Wales and a number of local authorities outside the Principality. We have excellent relationships with the local authorities who place children with our foster carers and have become the number one specialist agency for fostering children and young people with disabilities and complex medical needs.
Our guiding principles are that all children and young people should be treated with the utmost respect and dignity. The children and young people we place are perhaps the most vulnerable in society.
We believe that the experience of being looked after in a safe consistent family placement with mutually trusting relationships can provide the opportunity for personal development and growth. We aim to enable each child to reach their full potential whatever that might be.
In May 2011, we became part of the CareTech group of companies; we continue to grow steadily and have forged excellent relationships with the Local Authorities who place children with our foster carers.
