How long does short term foster care last?

Short term placements could last from a few days, a few weeks or sometimes a number of years. The child may return home, move to live with other family members who have been assessed, or move into a long term fostering or adoption placement. Short term fostering can be extremely varied and TACT will ensure you are equipped to manage the challenges and complexities. Training and support will be available.

Many short term placements made with TACT carers move into long term arrangements. This is as a result of the good initial matching process, and the subsequent hard work and commitment of our foster carers.
