Long Term foster care

As a long-term foster carer, you would look after children for their entire childhood. We understand the enormity of this commitment, which is why we take time to very carefully match you properly with children, making sure they have the best chance of thriving with you. Quite often, we match so successfully the arrangement becomes permanent.


Why should I consider long term fostering?

The rewards are huge for long-term foster care because you can make a big difference to a young person’s life. It gives you the time to build a relationship and guide them through their formative years, while providing all the care and friendship they need in a safe, stable environment.

A placement usually becomes long term after a foster child has enjoyed and thrived living with you, and you both want to make it more permanent. This can mean extra responsibilities for you, but we’ll work closely with you to make sure you are fully supported and happy with your role.
