Emergency, Respite and Remand Fostering

Types of Fostering - Emergency, Respite and Remand Fostering

Emergency Foster Placements

Children can be taken out of their family home in an emergency. Sometimes little is known about the child/situation, but foster care is provided to look after the young person.

Respite Foster Care

Respite Care is a planned foster care placement, set up to provide a break for other foster carers or family members.

Remand Foster Placements

Remand is an alternative to police custody. It is a specialised type of fostering and it aims to get young people out of a police environment where they are given the space to think differently.
