Permanence in Foster Care

Permanence in Foster Care

This is when foster carers and their family make an absolute emotional investment in the children and request to care for children on a permanency basis. In essence, social workers, the local authority, and other professionals leave the day to day, month to month planning for the child to the foster carers.

There are a few meetings and level of responsibility for the child is given to the foster carers. This type of fostering is extremely beneficial for our fostered children and allows them to really feel like they are part of the family, with adults and family members who have accepted them into their world.
