Parent & child fostering
Foster parents provide a home to a young expectant mum or a vulnerable parent and their young child – not just to keep them safe, but to help them develop their parenting skills - and typically last around 12 weeks.
Short-term care can be anything from a night or two, a couple of weeks, and up to two years. In many cases, this will be just as long as it takes to get the child back safely together with their birth family or moved into a long-term foster placement, but there are other reasons too.
