Are you flexible enough to offer stability, love and commitment in the short-term and then say goodbye when the time comes? The job of a short-term foster carer is to prepare a child to either return home or move on to a permanent adoptive or long-term fostering placement. Their stay with you could be anything from a few days to two years.
If a child is unable to return home they may be adopted. Where this is not in their best interest, we aim to find them a long-term fostering family, somewhere they can call home until they reach an age when they can live independently. Could you offer this longer-term commitment to a young person and help them to reach their full potential?
Respite foster care
Are you looking for something more fulfilling to do during your weekends and holidays? Respite fostering is a good option for those who can’t commit to fostering full-time.
We’re always on the look-out for people who have experience of caring for children or young people with additional or complex needs (such as teenage mothers with babies, children with learning or physical disabilities or young people with challenging behaviour). If you have specialist skills or you’re keen to learn them, please get in touch.
