Fostering for Adoption (0 – 4 years)

Caritas Care are looking for people who wish to adopt babies and younger children aged 0 – 4 years. We offer different routes on how to do this and one of these routes is via our innovative partnership service Fostering for Adoption (also known as Concurrent Planning).

Our partnership with Adoption Matters, works with a number of local authorities in the area to provide a service where fostering and adoption work closely together to ensure every child is given stability and love from the start. Anyone interested in providing this type of placement, which is known as concurrent planning, would become approved as both foster carers and adopters.

Concurrent Planning is for babies and young children of pre-school age who are likely to need adoption, but who still have a chance of being reunited with their birth family. Carers perform the role of foster carer while the courts decide whether or not a child can return to its birth family.
