what is staying put?
Some young people decide they do not want to leave their foster home at 18, so we have developed the ‘Staying Put’ scheme. This scheme means that you can come to an agreement with your foster carer to continue living with them beyond 18.
You will not be in foster care anymore but you will still live in the same place with the same people.
This arrangement can also be made in situations such as:
- You join the armed forces
- You decide to go to university
This is so you have somewhere to return to in half term, holidays, breaks etc.
If you have any questions or would like to Speak to us about anything else please do get in touch.
