Different types of fostering
The type of fostering you’re approved for will determine what you can offer, and this can change over the course of a fostering career.
This includes 'short breaks' when you are giving parents, other foster carers or children a break from each other
When a child gets placed with little notice, and usually stays no more than 12 weeks
When the child’s plan is to go back to live with their parents, but they need to spend some time in foster care or while a permanent placement is being found. Interim fostering is usually for less than 24 months.
When you look after a child for more than 24 months
when the child lives with you permanently and the child is subject to a 'permanence order'. This is an legal order by which Moray Council seek and obtain parental rights and responsibilities, which may be shared with you depending on the child’s circumstances.
