Who will I look after?
As a parent and child foster carer, you will provide support to families who are experiencing difficulties with parenting whilst they are assessed and/or supported to try and resolve these difficulties. The aim is to ensure the child has the best chance of remaining with their family.
While this type of placement is sometimes known as parent and baby fostering, you may not always look after very young children. Equally, the parent or parents can be of either gender, and their ages can range from adolescence to adulthood.
