Being a Foster Parent

Support from MSF

You can apply for childcare leave directly with your employee, per your company's policy.

You can share your Letter of identity to your employer as confirmation that a foster child has been placed under the Children and Young Persons Act 1993 (CYPA), in order to assist your employer to check your eligibility for childcare leave.

If your employer has any enquiries on childcare leave for foster parents, you can approach your foster care officer, who will assist with addressing your employer's questions. Your employer can also write in to MSF Fostering Service at with their queries and to verify your eligibility for childcare leave.
