More than 30 people signed up as foster carers last year with Fostering RCT, which says 2016 was an incredible and rewarding year.
Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s fostering service provides long and short term homes for 680 babies, children and young people who are unable to live with their birth families.
The 36 new foster carers now making a huge difference to the lives of children include a retired coach driver, a single mum and carers who previously worked for other agencies.
Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Fostering Champion, Cllr Geraint Hopkins, said those who have chosen to foster have said what a challenging, rewarding and life-changing experience it has been for them.
Fostering RCT is now recruiting and you can find out more at a series of information roadshows this week;
