Mainstream fostering

AFA Fostering provides a variety of different foster placements to meet the differing needs of Looked After Children.

Short term and Bridging foster placements

These meet the needs of children on a short-term basis. This may be before returning to their birth family or moving to an alternative Long Term or Permanent family. These can also be pre-adoptive.

Emergency foster placements

These meet the immediate needs of children. These are often placements needed on the same day or night, and weekends. These can also be unaccompanied minors.

Respite foster placements

A respite placement provides support to families who do not have their own support network. It may also be for a means of supporting other foster families.
