Types of Foster Care
Did you know there were different types of fostering?
All types of fostering is challenging, rewarding and a massive commitment your whole family has to make. All our families feel it is worth it.
When considering fostering you need to think about what style of fostering would best suit you and your household. Some people feel they wish to care for a child until they reach adulthood, whilst others feel that they are best suited to care for children for a shorter time while decisions are made about their longer time future.
Then there are even more specialized types of foster care like parent and child, therapeutic fostering and emergency foster care.
You can change the type of fostering you do over time, whether that’s taking on therapeutic care as you gain confidence or changing to caring for a child longer term.
