Become a Foster Carer
Putting the care into career
“Fostering has provided me with the experiences and rewards that I was looking for”
Could fostering be the right challenge for you?
Right now, more foster carers are needed in Scotland to provide a safe, stable home for vulnerable children and young people in your area. Fostering takes energy, enthusiasm and the willingness to make a full-time commitment to fostering.
We need foster carers in a number of regions throughout Scotland, and are particularly interested in hearing from people who are experienced in working with children and young people with complex needs or difficult behaviour, or have relevant transferable skills.
We are also looking for foster carers for children and young people who have previously been living in residential care and who would benefit from the chance to live as part of a family in a fully supported fostering placement. For more information about specialist fostering placements, please visit our website or call the telephone number below to speak to one of our fostering advisors.
- A competitive professional fee from £397.25 per week
- Paid respite
- 24/7 support 365 days a year
- A local team of social workers, therapists, education specialists and support workers
- Comprehensive, excellent quality training
