What is parent and child fostering?
With this type of fostering, you will be able to provide a helping hand to a new parent when they need it most. With your guidance and our support, they will learn the skills needed to raise a happy and healthy child. This gives the parent and child the best possible chance of staying together in the long-term.
Who will I look after?
Parent and child foster carers provide support to families who are experiencing difficulties with parenting whilst they are assessed and/or supported to try and resolve these difficulties.
The parent or parents you look after can be of either gender, and their ages can range from adolescence to adulthood. While this type of placement is often for a family with a younger child or children, this is not always the case.
The aim is to ensure the child has the best chance of remaining with their family.
