Foster Care

ac.care provide support for local carers and children who are in need of home-based care.

Foster carers can provide different types of care depending on their availability and personal circumstances.

These include Respite Care of children occasionally or periodically for a weekend or as a short break, Emergency Care, Short-term Care and Long-term Care when it is unlikely a child will return to their biological family home.

If you think you could help and would like to have a chat about what foster care involves, one of our friendly Foster Care team will be happy to answer your questions and have an initial chat over the phone.
