Carers delivering Short Breaks care will care for children or young people for a specific, short period of time. It is planned and can offer a few hours or even weekends for a child who would usually have a disability. This is often to offer a break to the child or young person's birth family.
Parent and Child Foster Placement:
Parent and child placements involve offering supervision, guidance and safe care to young parents and their baby/child so that they can care safely for their child. There is usually an assessment of a parent and child placement which might be undertaken by a social worker or independent assessor, or more rarely, a foster carer.
Remand fostering is designed to support and assist young people involved in criminal, offending behaviour. Young people can be remanded into foster care from the courts and this can avoid them being exposed to more serious offending. Remand foster carers, as part of the team around the child will work with the Court as well as the Youth Offending team.
