As a fostering agency, we have responsibility for finding foster homes for children in the Republic of Ireland. This means we need people, just like you, to take the time to consider becoming a family for a child in need of foster care. We pride ourselves on providing a professional, child centered and approachable service.
Our foster parents provide care for placements such as the following, depending on the needs of the child.
Children come in to care sometimes for anything from days to weeks or even months. Short term placements can be made for a variety of reasons, such as illness of primary carer, neglect, or substance abuse. Supporting children at this time of transition is a crucial part of short-term foster care.
Sometimes the best solution for a child in care is to remain with the foster family for several years until they can live independently at the age of 18. While these young people cannot live in their own home, regular contact with their birth family usually takes place.
Fostering can be hard work. However, we work with carers to make sense of this important task. We bring together all the professionals involved in a child’s life to create a plan that ensures the preferred developmental outcomes for children in our care and provides guidance to their foster carers.
Our foster carers are a diverse group of enthusiastic, committed, and caring people who have time in their lives to care for a child and are willing to learn. We are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from people regardless of age, race, sexuality, gender, or religion.
