Different types of fostering

There are many types of fostering, some of which can work alongside each other if you have the capability and space to foster more than one child. You can foster full-time or part-time and you can change the type of fostering you do whenever you're ready too.

If we can give them memories that have been amazing or fun, or a feeling of love or that they were wanted...that's what goes with them hopefully.

Fostering teens 16+ comes with different rewards and challenges. It is often more flexible for you to work alongside your fostering career if you want to, and although they still need your guidance, teens are more independent.
