OCC Foster Care

        

Fostering is caring for a child in your own home when they are unable to stay with their own families. Foster carers come from all walks of life, what is important is your interest in caring for a child. Fostering gives you the chance to make a difference to a child's life and have them make an amazing difference to yours. Some children need just a few days or weeks of foster care - others may need a longer period of temporary care while we help their family to get over more serious difficulties or until we can place them with extended family, long-term carers or adoptive parents.
