The young people we support
Children of all ages need temporary foster care. Usually, foster carers concentrate on a specific age group according to their preference or family circumstances. Children often come into care with brothers and sisters and it is important to keep siblings together; so, it helps to have foster carers who can take two or possibly three children.
Wherever possible, children are prepared for separation and foster carers play a major role in maintaining their contact with parents. However, some children may be removed under traumatic and emergency circumstances and present with significant emotional and behavioural difficulties, they will need understanding and a sensitive and patient approach to their care.
Sometimes, a young person who has recently become a parent can be placed in foster care along with their baby. These placements generally focus on assessing the parent’s ability to care for the child and identify support needs.
