How long will a foster child need to stay with us?


You could be approved to foster children on a short or long term basis. Or to do both.

Short term fostering is about providing a child with care for a temporary period. As a short term foster carer you could care for a child for from a few weeks or for many months. It is not unusual for children to live with short term foster carers for 1-2 years.  

Long term foster carers provide children with a home until the young person is an adult at age 18. Some young adults stay with their former foster carers beyond age 18 under "Staying Put" arrangements.
