Foster carer

A foster carer is someone who offers a place in their home to a looked after child. They will have been assessed and approved by children’s services or an independent fostering agency as suitable to provide foster care.

Family members and friends can be assessed and approved by children’s services to become foster carers. If a parents wants a family member to care for their child, or if a family member wants to foster a child they are related to, they should speak to the child’s social worker as soon as they can.
