Types of fostering

There are different types of fostering to suit different types of children including:

  • Short term fostering - for children of all ages who may return to their parents within a few days, months or longer
  • Long term fostering - provides a permanent home for a child or children until they are ready to live independently and take care of themselves
  • Parent and child fostering - to help young mothers who need support and guidance in caring for their new baby
  • Respite fostering - for short, regular planned stays so families under stress can have a break
  • Teenage fostering -  for teenagers who need a home until they are ready to live independently
  • Private fostering - where an unrelated adult cares for a child by private arrangements for 28 days or more
