Short Term Placements

Short term foster care is the most common type of fostering placement and can vary in length from a single night emergency placement up to 2 years.

The children who require a short term foster home may have experienced neglect or abuse prior to coming into care and may be going through care proceedings or waiting to be adopted.

Alternatively, their parents may be temporarily unable to care for them, through illness or other circumstance.

Coming into foster care can be particularly traumatic for children and young people. Our foster carers offer children a stable, loving family environment for as long as they need, while their longer term plans are confirmed.
