What is Fostering?
Fostering or foster care, is a way of providing a safe and loving family home for children who cannot, for whatever the reason, live with their own parents. Foster families open their homes and hearts to children in need, and share their family life with them.
Foster care is sometimes used as a temporary solution whilst problems within the birth family are resolved, or plans for adoption are completed. For many other children, fostering provides a permanent family environment where they can stay until they are old enough to live independently.
At Family Fostering Partners, many of our placements are long term, providing foster carers with a real opportunity to make a positive difference to the lives of children in their care.
