Types of placement

No two children are the same, which is why there are many different kinds of fostering placement. While you are going through the process of becoming a foster carer, we will help you decide which kind of placement would be the best for you.

Placement options include:

Long Term Placements – where carers provide a stable home for a child right through until adulthood.

Parent and Child Foster Placements – Where parents and their young children/babies live with foster carers to assess and support their parenting skills.

Sibling Placements – where brothers and sisters are placed together to preserve the family unit.

Short Term or Emergency Placements – where carers provide a temporary home for a child when parents are unable to look after them for some reason. Sometimes, children in short term placements move on to be adopted instead of returning to birth parents.

Respite Placements – where carers provide a weekend or short break to parents and/or other foster carers.
