Fostering is where individuals provide a caring and secure environment in their own home for other people's children and young people. Fostering can be done on a full or part-time basis and ranges from day or weekend care to a few months or even on a long-term basis. Fostering a child offers you many opportunities to make a difference in a child's life by helping to provide health, education and emotional support.
