Guide: Types of fostering

Child and Parent fostering

We need specialist and experienced carers to support and assess those with parenting difficulties. Our carers work together with the birth parents and a team of staff in order to help to improve parenting skills.

This enables the birth parents and the child to stay together, and therefore increases the likelihood that the parent and baby can bond in those crucial early months together.

It also allows the parents to stay in their local area, offering them stability and consistency in their lives.

We are currently actively recruiting new child and parent foster carers across Devon.

Sal and Keith recently moved from mainstream into child and parent fostering, you can read their journey here.
