Children we foster

We specialise in providing foster placements for children, young people and sibling groups of any age. Many of the children we foster have high and complex needs and, as a result challenging behaviours, or because of a disability.

There are many reasons why children need foster care, many have experienced some level of trauma, neglect or rejection.

Some may express their emotions and feelings through difficult or challenging behaviour. They may have tantrums, be withdrawn, aggressive, clingy or over-compliant. Other children may act older or younger than their years and find it difficult to develop trusting relationships with adults.
