Service summary

Home and Away is a scheme that supports families with children with disabilities. 

Further information

The Home and Away Scheme supports families of children with disabilities, by linking them with foster carers who will look after their children, in the foster carers own home. This not only provides families with some respite, but also provides the children with opportunities to extend their own ‘families’ and expand their experiences.

Please visit the Fostering and Adoption website (link on the left) or the Home & Away page on Swindon.gov.uk (link on the right) for further information.
