Short term foster care

The safety and security of children is our priority. Temporary or short term foster care is absolutely vital for children who desperately need a place to stay, while a more permanent living solution can be arranged. You may be needed to provide support for anything from a night to a few weeks or sometimes months.


Why should I consider short term foster caring?

Sadly, we find that many children need to be taken out of dangerous situations at home very quickly. In these circumstances there isn’t time to search for the perfect placement, our priority is to get them to safety. That’s why short-term care is just as important as longer placements.

Quite often, some of the children who need short-term care have social or behavioural issues, which can present new and difficult challenges. As with most foster care, it’s about taking small steps, and our fully qualified team will help to support and reassure you throughout these placements.
