    Fostering Siblings

    When sibling groups are placed in foster care it can become a challenge for the Local Authority to keep them together. However, it is very important to keep the children together given their potential relationships with each other, the support they may provide each other and their shared experiences.
    We are seeing an increasing need for foster homes for sibling groups and also seeing a greater number of younger children being referred to us. “Younger” includes babies and under fives.
