Private Fostering

Private Fostering Guidance & App

If you are under the age of 16 (or under 18 if disabled) and you are being cared for, and provided with accommodation, for 28 days or more by someone that is not your parent, guardian, brother, sister, step-parent, grandparent, or the brother or sister of your parent, then you are being privately fostered and the person looking after you is called a private foster carer. To find out more about what this means for you, download our easy to access & simple to understand Private Fostering App.  You can do this by scanning the QR codes in our Private Fostering poster (click link below) or go to the App Store or Google Play and search for CHSCP Private Fostering.
