Fostering in Leinster
Are you interested in fostering in Leinster? This page offers you some useful information about becoming a foster carer in your county.
Why do we need foster carers in Leinster?
When circumstances lead to a child or young person being taken into care, the preferred option by the HSE is to place them with a fostering family.
The trouble is, there's a shortage of foster carers in Leinster. As a result, residential placements may be the only viable option.
Therefore, Leinster needs foster carers to provide a safe, secure and stable fostering environment for children in Ireland’s care system.
