Foster care placements

Every foster care placement is different. We provide a variety of types of foster care placements for children and sibling groups of any age. These can be short term or long term placements lasting from a few days to many months.

Types of foster care placements

Short term and medium foster care placements – Short term foster carers provide temporary care for children and young people that may last for a few months until they’re able to return home or until alternative arrangements can be made for them. Foster Carers often help the child to prepare for a ‘home for life family.

Respite – Respite foster care placements allow children who are living with a foster family to have a short stay with another fostering family to give them and their main carers or family a break.

Placements for disabled children – Our placements for disabled children are centred around the child. We provide our foster carers with tailored support and training to look after a child with disabilities; whether physical, learning or sensory.
