Types of Care

Respite

Respite care gives a regular break to full-time foster carers, parents and guardians, available often one or two weekends a month, or a week during school holidays.

Emergency

Emergency care is for children and young people who require placement immediately due to concerns for their safety. Due to the urgency there is usually very little notice before being placed with the foster carer.

Short-term

Short-term care is for children and young people who may require placement from a couple of weeks up to six months. They are often reunited with their family at the end of the placement.

Long-term

Long-term care is for children and young people who can not or are unlikely to return home for an extended period. This may cease when a permanent placement is arranged, or when the child reaches adulthood.
