Long term fostering

There are many different types of fostering but it looks like long-term foster caring may suit you.

What is long-term fostering?

It’s when you foster a child on a long term basis.  The child will be between 0–18 years of age, and you could foster them for a few years, or usually until they becomes independent.

It’s a brilliant way to really make an impact on a local child and help them to grow up and reach their potential.  A happy and stable home means a child has the basics they need to reach their potential and contribute to their community.

Can I be a long-term foster carer?

Yes!  There’s no ‘typical’ foster carer all sorts of people make great foster carers.

  • You don’t need to have a big house
  • You don’t have to be a parent
  • There are no age barriers
  • You may be married, single, in a civil partnership or living in a settled relationship
  • You can be working or not working

As long as you’re committed to helping a child to realise their potential, you could be what we are looking for and we would love to hear from you.
