Parent and Child Foster Care Explained

We passionately believe that all children need a loving and safe home and where possible if a child can remain with their parents. Child and parent fostering is where you offer a home to both the parents and baby/young child (or maybe to both parents and the child). The parent may be under 18, they maybe a looked after child themselves or have additional needs. Sometimes they will be placed during the pregnancy so you can help them prepare, but most often arrive with their baby.

As a role model you will be able to advise, guide and nurture the parent to hopefully have the outcome everyone hopes for.

The parent and baby may need additional help and advice, and your role will be to advise, support and reassure, until they can move onto their independent home. As a role model you will be able to advise, guide and nurture the parent to hopefully have the outcome everyone hopes for.
