There are various types of foster care placements you may be asked to consider.
As a foster carer, you’re likely to become accustomed with a variety of fostering placements – and you may also become specialised in certain areas. That’s why if you’re thinking of becoming a foster carer, it’s important to understand the different types of fostering you could be involved with.
The different types of foster care placements can be broken up into the following list:
Often, one type of foster care may develop into another – for example, you may begin on an emergency fostering placement, which then turns into short term fostering if the child needs an immediate fostering placement.
It’s also important to note that even if you are specialised in a certain type of foster care, it is not guaranteed that you will always be called on for that specific type of foster care.
