Short & long term fostering

As the cost of living increases and with life post Covid, we understand that there is more to consider when considering a foster child. Whatever your situation, you could consider short term fostering to see if fostering is for you. This can potentially be a doorway into longer term fostering if you wanted to consider this, or just stick with short term fostering if that is better for you.
