Fostering a child requires patience and compassion, and it is important that we recruit foster carers with these attributes as many of the children we receive referrals for have been through some traumatic experiences. If you live in and around Bromley and are looking to become a foster parent, then get in touch with UK Fostering today.
Fostering in Bromley
We are currently looking for foster carers in Bromley for the following types of fostering:
Long Term Fostering provides a child or young person with a safe, nurturing home where they can live for a number of years if they cannot return to the care of their own families. These foster placements can last for many years, often until the child reaches the age of 18 and is ready for independence.
Short Term Fostering is providing a child or young person with a place to stay until they can return to their own family, or until it becomes evident that they need a more permanent foster placement or possibly adoptive parents, and can last for anywhere from a few days up until a few months.
Emergency fostering is when a placement is made within 24 hours of it being requested, and where there has been no prior plan. Usually these placements last up to about 2 weeks but potentially can turn into longer-term foster placements.
