Types of Fostering

There are many different types of fostering. As a Foster Carer, you could provide:

  • Long-term Foster Carer – Providing a child with a home until adulthood.
  • Short-term Foster Carer – Caring for a child for a period of days, months or years.
  • Parent and Child – Supporting parents to understand their own needs and the needs of their baby.
  • Weekend or “respite” Foster Carer – Giving a main Foster Carer a much deserved break.
  • Short Break – Giving parents a break for children who are not in Foster Carer but who need the occasional break.
