Private Fostering - Caring for Somebody Else’s Child

Wiltshire Council would like to reduce the number of children in un-notified private fostering arrangements across the county. They would be delighted if you could help.


Are you caring for somebody else’s child?
If you are caring for somebody else’s child*, are not a close relative and the child* has been living in your home for 28 days or more, you must let the local authority know as they can provide support and advice. (*Child = under 16 or under 18 for a child with disabilities)


Please call the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 0300 456 0108 or email mash@wiltshire.gov.uk .
