Foster Care fortnight: Carer shortage in Wales
More than 400 foster families are needed in Wales in the next year to ensure children in need get a suitable home.
The Fostering Network said there was "a particular need" for carers for teenagers and sibling groups.
The charity's latest figures - released as part of Foster Care Fortnight (8-22 May) - show 7,180 families are needed across the UK.
Director Colin Turner said without more foster families in Wales coming forward, some children will "find themselves living a long way from family".
