Family and friend carers

Sometimes parents can’t always look after their children and may make arrangements for family members or friends to care for them for a period of time. If you want to know how Camden can support family and friend carers see our 'Family and Friends Care in Camden' leaflet.

For more information on how we can support family and friend carers in Camden, please see our policy statement.

Private fostering

If you are making arrangements for your child to be looked after for more than 28 days by someone who is not their grandparent, step-parent, aunt, uncle or sibling, you need to let us know. For more information see our private fostering leaflet.
