Foster Care Connect specialises in caring for children and young people requiring long term and permanent foster care . We also have capacity to provide short term placements and short breaks where there is a need.  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 short breaks, 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.
