Are you aware of children living outside their birth families?
Private fostering is when a child or young person under 16 years of age (or under 18 if they have a disability) is looked after by someone who is not a close relative, guardian or person with parental responsibility for more than 28 days.
However, if the child is living with an approved foster carer or if the arrangement was made by children’s services, then this is not a private fostering arrangement.
