What is foster care?

When birth parents are no longer able to look after a child, the child will enter into the care of approved foster carers, usually in a location near their family home. The foster carer will then provide a safe and nurturing environment for the child or young person.

Happy Hearts provides a variety of different types of fostering placements to meet the individual needs of the child or young person. These include;

• Long-term fostering
• Short and Medium-term fostering
• Emergency fostering
• Respite and Short-Break fostering
• Remand fostering
• Parent and Child fostering
• Sibling fostering
• Fostering for disabled children
• Fostering for Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Children (UASC)
• Step down fostering
