Why Foster?

Who requires foster care?

‘The mind-set is refreshing; the value base is all about the children’

(Ofsted report 2016)

Children and young people come into care for various reasons, which may include:

  • Children who have been neglected or physically, emotionally or sexually abused
  • Family crisis or bereavement
  • Moving from residential care
  • Young people unaccompanied in this country-seeking asylum
  • Criminal reasons that have required the young person to be remanded into the care of the local Authority
  • Parents with babies and experiencing difficulties
  • Children who have parents who abuse drugs/alcohol
  • Family relationships have seriously broken down and a young person asks to be looked after away from home
