Diagrama runs a specialist service offering long term as well as short term and respite placements only. We feel it is important to spend time and attention to support people in the tasks they undertake with us. As a carer for Diagrama you will be part of a small and committed team.
At Diagrama, we will offer you the support, training, supervision and remuneration when a child is in placement with you to help you make a success of Foster Care.
Children who are placed in a long term placement tend to be in the 7-10 year age range and stay until they are able to make their own way in life. They may still have contact with their birth family, but we hope they will also have a permanent place in yours.
Local authorities approach us to provide foster carers for the children they are ‘looking after’. This may be a voluntary arrangement with the child’s parents or there may have been a court order.
We accept children, regardless of their cultural, ethnic or religious backgrounds, either singly or with their brothers and sisters.
The length of time that they stay with our carers is dependent on the child's circumstances and the plan for the child.
