There are many ways you can help a vulnerable child through fostering. It is about providing a safe and secure place for them to live whether it is or a few days or for years.
At Elite Fostering, we believe anybody can become a foster carer and we welcome people from all backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities who want to pursue this rewarding career. You only need a spare bedroom and undergo an assessment and must pass various checks.
Emergency foster placements are:
Foster carers who are available to offer a foster placement at short notice, 24 hours a day. These placements are made usually with very little preparations, for example if the lone parent is taken to hospital and there is no one to look after the child. Children and young people placed in emergency placements usually move out to a short-term placement or move back to their foster carers, birth families or extended family members.
