There are many different types of fostering placements. Every child and young person will have completely different needs. For many children a positive outcome for fostering may be returning to their parents or extended family. Maintaining contact and working with genuine respect for the child's family is crucial for keeping these options available. Other children may succeed best in long term alternative families including permanent foster care placements. However, there are also some unique placement types such as Parent and Child placements, which involves providing support and guidance to a young mother and/or father, helping them develop their parenting skills while offering care for their children.
Futures for Children can provide a wide range of foster care placements and professional support services providing specific packages of care to meet the needs of individual children and young people. These services are delivered by qualified and experienced social work staff and foster carers who are valued members of our professional team.
