About Short-Term Foster Care
Short-term foster carers provide a temporary home for a child when their parents or primary carers can no longer safely look after them.
Short-term fostering gives you the chance to make a huge difference to a child at a time when they are experiencing great change and uncertainty. You will help the child understand their circumstances and come to terms with the changes they are facing, whilst providing stability at a very difficult time. You may only spend a couple of weeks with them, but the impact you have may last a lifetime.
