Types of foster care
There are a lot of reasons why families aren’t able to look after their children.
Many of these reasons will only apply for a short time. In other cases children might need to be fostered for much longer.
We need carers for children aged 0-18. The type of care depends on what support a child needs but foster carers can offer one or more of:
- short-term care
- long-term care
- emergency care
- special care for children with disabilities
- respite care
- remand care for young offenders
- temporary accommodation for young people getting ready to live independently
We offer professional training, constant guidance and financial support to all our foster carers.
