Parent and child placements

Could you provide specialist support and guidance in a family-based placement?

This specialist type of fostering aims to provide a safe, family-based placement for a parent (sometimes parents) and child in a foster home.

Foster carers play a key role in the assessment of parents and their ability to care for their child. Placements last on average about 12 weeks.

You would need to be there for the family on a 24 hour basis during the assessment period and be able to promote good parenting.

Foster carers have said they find parent and child placements challenging, but worthwhile and rewarding.
