#mythbustermission – can I foster short term?

There is such a range of children and young people who need foster families, for a variety of reasons and in numerous situations.

For some children and young people, short term foster care is what they need, to keep them safe until they can return to their birth family, or whilst assessments are taking place or to prepare the child for adoption.

Short term foster carers are as needed as long term ones are, so if this is your preference, you are very welcome at Chrysalis Care.

One possibility is that a child or young person is initially fostered on a short basis and it is later decided that they need to be fostered long term.  Many Chrysalis Care foster carers started fostering a child on a short term basis and years later, the young person is still with them and very much a part of the family.

The main prerequisite is that foster carers are flexible and child centred. Is that you? To find out more about different types of fostering, click here
