Types of fostering in Redditch

Short term fostering places a child or young person within a safe and secure environment until they are able to return home or in some cases until they are adopted.

Short term fostering ensures that the needs of the child are prioritised until their situation can be resolved.

Long term fostering provides ongoing support and stability for young people until they reach adulthood.

In scenarios where the young person or siblings are unable to return to their birth family and adoption is also not a suitable option, long term fostering ensures their well-being needs continue to be met.

  Respite foster care is an invaluable service for parents or carers of children with complex needs, giving them time to recharge their batteries so that they can offer the best level of care themselves.

Respite fostering is an extremely rewarding way to support the wider foster network in Redditch.
