Specialised Fostering

As a foster carer with specialist skills and training you are able to offer support to a child that requires these skills. Some of the areas you could develop into are:-

  • Parent and Child Placements – This involves taking a parent or parents and their child/ren into your home. This type of fostering involves supporting women who are pregnant or a parent who may be experiencing difficulties with their baby and helping them to develop their skills.
  • Children/Young People with Learning or Physical Disability – Support these children/young children to develop their full potential.
  • Children/Young People with complex behavioural problems – Looking after children/young people with complex or challenging behaviours.
  • Remand Fostering – Children and young people who are fostered on a remand to care basis will be looked after in a family environment, pending court dates for an offence they are alleged to have committed. This provides an alternative to them being held in custody or a secure unit.
  • Bridging Placement – A short term arrangement in which the foster carer prepares the young person for the transition into long term adoptive care.
