Types of fostering

Parent and child fostering

This involves a young parent and their baby living with you and you will support them emotionally, as well as with the practical aspects of parenting. 

Providing support and guidance to the young parent in meeting both their own and their child's needs. Working closely with them to improve their parenting skills, to support the bond between parent and child and increase the likelihood of the parent continuing to care for their child.

Your observations and insights into how well they are able to cope with parenting their child will help inform the future plans for them.
