Foster Care

Fostering is a temporary arrangement – on either a short of long term basis, and many children in foster care will return to their birth family.  Some fostered children are eventually adopted, either by their foster carer or another family.  Local Authorities can only place children with foster carers who have been approved by an agency registered with the Care Inspectorate.  Such agencies include local authorities, voluntary organisations and independent sector providers
