Fostering

Children and young people are fostered for a variety of reasons and no two situations are the same.

However, all children and young people coming into care need people who are committed to giving them a service that will bring about the best possible outcomes.

Foster Parents welcome children and young people into their homes and families and will give each child every opportunity to fit in with the family whilst respecting the child’s own heritage and culture.

Fostering is regulated by legislations, guidelines and standards; at TRUE Fostercare we support our Foster Parents to care for a child within these guidelines.

People who foster can register with a Local Authority or with an independent agency such as TRUE Fostercare.

Fostering is a commitment to a child or young person, which may be for different lengths of time. Placements vary and may be;

  • Emergency
  • Short term
  • Respite
  • Long term
  • Therapeutic

Whatever type of placement TRUE Fostercare will work with you and the other professionals around the child to provide the best service possible to help you make a difference for the child.

Allowances are paid to Foster Parents to cover the cost of the care given to the child.
