What is Fostering
Fostering is caring for a child in your own home at a time when his or her parents/family are unable to do so.
Children and young people can be placed in foster care for many different reasons; it may be that the parents are going through a difficult period or that the child has been abused or neglected. The reason is rarely related to the child and in the end many children will return to their birth families and own communities.
Foster Carer’s Role
Foster carers provide the stable family environment that is needed by these children and young people. This can be essential for these children to achieve their full potential. At Fostering People, we train and support carers to become true professionals in their role. There is access to 24-hour support, so you will never feel alone.
