Foster Care provides a safe family environment for children who cannot, for lots of different reasons, live with their own families. Fostering is often used to provide temporary care while parents get help sorting out problems. Foster care can also support children or young people through difficult periods in their lives.
Children will often return home to their families once issues are sorted out. Other children may stay in longer-term foster care, may go on to be adopted or, when they are ready, may move on to live independently.
Within foster care, you will find roles such as:
- Fostering manager
- Foster carer
Keep checking the website regularly as we will be featuring all the roles involved in foster care.
