  • Private Fostering

    Some people think that Private Fostering is when you foster a child for an Independent Fostering Agency. It isn't.

    Private Fostering is when a child or young person under 16 years old, or 18 years old if they have a disability, is looked after for 28 days or more by another adult.

    If you are a great grand-parent, great uncle/aunt, friend or neighbour of that child, then you may be a Private Foster Carer. Close relatives such a parents, grandparents, brothers or sisters are not deemed as Private Foster Carers.
