Match Foster Care About Us

Types of fostering available through Match Foster Care in Kidderminster

If you’re eager to become a foster carer in Herefordshire but feeling uncertain about which type of fostering suits you best, worry not! We’re here to lend a helping hand. There are several types of fostering available, each designed to meet the unique needs of children and young people.

Young people may only need to be placed under the care of a foster parent for a short duration of time. Short term fostering ensures that while a child waits for adoption, or until they are able to return to their home environment, their care and overall needs are maintained.

Long term fostering gives foster parents the opportunity to support young people over a longer duration. This gives a sense of stability for the child as they remain within the same fostering family in any case where adoption or returning to their home environment is not suitable for their circumstances.

As a respite foster carer, you will provide essential relief to those who care for children with complex needs. Respite foster care enables parents or carers to be able to take care of their own health and wellbeing needs, so that they can provide the best level of care themselves.

By providing a supportive and nurturing environment, we ensure that siblings can grow and thrive together. Fostering siblings allows you to make a significant impact on their lives, fostering strong sibling bonds and creating a sense of stability and belonging.

Our Disability Fostering program is all about providing a loving and supportive home for children with disabilities. We understand the unique needs and challenges they face, and we’re here to offer a helping hand.

Our Fostering Sanctuary Seeking Children program is dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing home for children who have sought refuge and sanctuary. By opening your heart and home to these children, you can offer them a place of security, love, and support during a challenging time. Your kindness and compassion can make a world of difference in their lives.
