We believe that making a difference to a child’s life doesn’t need to be a ‘one size fits all’ commitment. With care arrangements ranging from Weekend Care right through to Long Term care, there’s a flexible option to suit you.
Weekend / Respite Care
Short Term Care
Long Term Care
Weekend and respite Care can have a very positive impact on a child by giving them the chance to interact in a different social setting while their primary carers takes a short break.
Never is the need for quality care greater for a child than when they require short term Emergency Care. Foundations Care provides the support network to empower our Carers to provide a safe and stable environment in these situations.
