Foster care provides a home for a child in need, but being a foster carer involves so much more. Fostering has many forms. Foster carers can provide care in emergencies, caring for a child for just a few days, or perhaps over a weekend to give the main foster carer a break, known as 'respite' foster care. Or it can be for longer periods, sometimes throughout a child's formative years up to the age of 21.
Whether it's overnight or for a number of years, foster carers can provide the support, stability and care a fostered child needs.
