Often there are multiple reasons why a child cannot live with their parents.
As a result there are many children and young people who need to stay in a Foster home for various lengths of time. Often these children are not in control of the situation and can feel very vulnerable, frightened and confused.
The majority of children return to live with their birth family. Some move on to adoptive parents and some remain with the Foster carers until they are old enough to live independently.
