WHAT IS FOSTERING?
Fostering is a way of providing a stable family life for children and young people who are unable to live with their parents or other relatives. Fostering is challenging but also rewarding at the same time. It takes time, patience and commitment to foster.
The children and young people placed with foster carers are from a number of different cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds and will display different behaviours depending upon their various experiences.
All children and young people are different, making it difficult to define a typical child, however, what you can expect is that, as with any child or young person, they need security, stability and the chance to develop and thrive.
