Foster Care Connect specialises in caring for children aged 12 and under with complex needs who can be difficult to place. We generally work with carers who can provide long-term placements for our children and young people. Some of our foster carers start out by providing respite care, and then wish to consider fostering full time.

How do we match children with foster carers? This is a very individual process, and will always take account of the needs of the child or young person and your skills and circumstances as a carer, as well as issues such as medical care and local schools. You, your partner and birth children are always very much involved, and you will have full information before we start introductions to the child you may foster.
