Foster care

The Foster Care Programme provides alternative care for children in difficult circumstances, children who are deprived of the parental care. The foster care in a family is being widely recognized as a preferred alternative to institutionalization. The foster family provides the care for the child while being a mentor and guide. In foster care the child is placed in a family for a short or extended period of time, where the biological parents of the child are often visited, at the end of the foster care programme the child returns to his/her family. In many cases the child may be placed in a family outside his/her family relations if such an arrangement is found to be suitable for the best interest of the child.
