There are several types of fostering and we would determine together which type of fostering you and your family would be best suited to.
Where children need somewhere to stay at very short notice for a few days and nights.
Where carer(s) look after children for a few weeks or months, whilst more permanent plans are made for them.
Where a criminal court asks the Local Authority to identify a foster placement where a young person can stay whilst they await appearance in court.
Short breaks and respite:
Where children with special needs or a disability stay with a family or carer for defined periods of time whilst their family take a break. This can be anything from an overnight stay to regular weekend breaks.
