Private Fostering Briefing (looking after someone elses child)

This is a 90 minute briefing which defines Private Fostering and details professionals and agency responsibilities. 

A Private Fostering arrangement is one where a child under the age of 16 (under 18 if disabled) is cared for by someone who is not their parent or a ‘close relative’ for 28 days or more.  People who are looking after a child in a Private Fostering arrangement are required by law to notify the Local Authority and professionals have a duty to refer any Private Fostering arrangements they become aware of.

Session objectives:

  • To understand what is meant by the term ‘private fostering’
  • To have more confidence in recognising a private fostering arrangement
  • To be clear on the responsibilities of those involved and understand the referral process.
