Types of Fostering

Every ‘looked after’ child has a different background and their own unique life story. We’re here to help them understand their past and move forward into the future.

That’s why we offer a range of different fostering placements including:

  • Short-Term
  • Long-Term
  • Parent and Child
  • Emergency
  • Respite
  • Sibling Group
  • Permanent
  • Interim
  • Short Break

How long will a child stay with me?

The length of time a child will stay with you will vary depending on the placement type, the child’s situation and their individual needs. It could be anything from a few days to several weeks, months, years or even permanently.

During your fostering assessment we’ll help you prepare for the different types of fostering placement and find out which would be best for you.

If you have any questions about our placements give our friendly team a call on 0141 646 4805. Or fill in our online enquiry form and we’ll get back to you.
