Every child is unique and will require different types of care depending on their experiences. All fostering differs slightly, and there are many distinct types of fostering that foster parents can choose to specialise in.
Making the choice about which type of fostering is best suited to you and your family will be something that takes a lot of thought. It’s good to consider what type of experience with children you have and where your skills lie. When people think about looking after children, fostering and adoption can get confused.
