Respite care is short term care provided to a child in order to support the child or foster carers by providing a break for the child’s primary caregivers. We have a panel of fully trained and experienced foster carers who provide respite support.
This is where carers offer young people aged over 16 the opportunity to learn the skills needed to live independently whilst receiving practical and emotional support. These young people come from a range of different backgrounds including refugees who are displaced from their own countries due to war and violence.
Questions and Concerns
During the fostering assessment process, we’ll talk through any questions or concerns you may have about different types of foster care to ensure that you’re entirely comfortable with the foster placements that are offered to you. We also provide training and support to help you prepare for your new role as a foster carer.
