Foster carers provide a safe, stable home and care for a child or young person who can’t live with their own family for various reasons.

The Suffolk fostering team and the adoption team work closely together.

Adoption is a separate process from fostering. Adoption is a process which transfers all legal responsibility for a child to their new parent(s).
