Fostering for Adoption leaflet for carers

Fostering for Adoption aims to place children with their forever family as soon as possible when they cannot live with their birth parents or other family members

Fostering for Adoption is when a child in temporary local authority care is placed with foster carers who are also approved as adopters. If the court agrees that the child should be adopted and the adoption agency approves the match between the foster carers as adopters and the child, the placement becomes an adoption placement. Read this information leaflet to find out more about how to become a foster carer and whether this option is the best for you.
