Types of Fostering - Long Term Fostering
Long Term Foster Placements
The Fostering Foundation specialises in long term foster care placements. We take time to find the right foster carers and try to match them where possible with suitable young people, so that they are more likely to stay together for the long term.
Some children are placed in foster care on a long term basis. This can be from a young age until they are old enough to leave care at the age of 18. Sometimes this may lead to them remaining with their foster carers in a Staying Put arrangement which can also be supported with a financial package until the age of 21.
