What is fostering?
Fostering is looking after a child within your home, on a short or long term basis.
Foster carers are paid fees and allowances to enable them to accommodate children in their home. Foster carers will need a spare bedroom within their home to look after a child over the age of two.
There can be many reasons why a child may need a foster home, including: family illnesses, abuse or neglect, breakdowns in family relations, or a child may have arrived unaccompanied from abroad.
