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 the following:

  • 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.
