Welcome to Cambridgeshire County Council’s fostering service

Children may need foster care for a range of different reasons, but in most cases they have experienced neglect or abuse and are at risk of significant harm. Fostering provides the stability and family support that a child or young person needs when they are unable to live at home. with their parents. Some looked after children return to their birth families, or other family members, while others remain with foster carers. until they are ready to live independently. Some children move on to adoption or residential care.
