Specialist foster care for children with disabilities

We provide short-term, long-term, respite and palliative family placements for children and young people from birth to 18 with a range of disabilities and complex needs, including learning difficulties, autistic spectrum disorders, hearing and visual impairments, physical disabilities, genetic disorders and life limiting conditions.

We offer short and long term foster care, respite and palliative fostering for children and young people with disabilities.

“Fostering is a hugely rewarding job. We get to see children in our care develop and become part of our family.”

“We’ve been given brilliant support from the team at TLC, which enables us to give our best support to the young person in our care. Thanks to all.”
