Long Term Fostering

Long Term Fostering

A decision has been made that the child is not able to live with their birth parents and will need to be cared for long term by foster carers. The children will have been living with short term foster carers and professionals will look for the most appropriate long term foster placement for that child, sibling group, or young person. Long term foster carers have committed to care for the children until they reach adulthood. The local authority will still remain involved in decisions regarding the child's care and welfare however contact with family and meetings will reduce.
