Private Fostering - What happens next?

Private fostering what happens next

Social services must be satisfied the arrangements are in the best interests of the child.

This doesn't mean they have to be perfect, but they will stop a placement if they consider it isn't in the child's best interests. This would be discussed with you and the child's parents.

So.....

  • Are you a Private Foster Carer?
  • Are you a parent of a child who is being looked after by a Private Foster Carer?
  • Are you being looked after by a Private Foster Carer?
  • Are you aware of a Private Fostering arrangement?

If you answered 'yes' to either of these questions, please contact Powys Children's Services Front Door Team via -
