Fostering a Child with TLC
TLC Wales offers specialist foster placements for children between the ages of 0-18 with a range of disabilities and complex needs.
We provide the following placements for children and young people with learning difficulties, autistic spectrum disorders and hearing and/or visual impairments, as well as children with physical disabilities, genetic disorders and life-limiting conditions:
Foster carers look after the child for a few weeks or months whilst plans are made for their future
Children and young people who are unable to live with their birth family permanently can go into long-term foster care
There are times when the demands of fostering means that a foster carer needs to take time out. TLC provides its foster carers with in-house respite, whereby registered TLC foster carers are identified as regular respite carers for children and young people placed within the agency. TLC also provides respite placements for children and young people that are referred to the agency from the Local Authorities
Our foster carers with nursing/care backgrounds look after children with life-limiting conditions. Child specific training is provided to ensure that the individual care needs of each child are met
