We have been helping families prepare to adopt since we first opened in Edinburgh in 1922. We now provide adoption and foster care services throughout the central belt and North-East Scotland and welcome adoption and fostering enquiries from all members of the community, including the LGBT+ community and single people, and all faiths.
Find out how we can lead you right through your journey to becoming an adoptive parent.
Discover how you can become a foster carer through St Andrew’s Children’s Society.
Concurrent care explores the possibility of a baby or very young child being returned to his or her birth parents before adoption. Find out if it’s right for you.
Find out about the exceptional support we offer our families and what our families have to say about their experiences of adopting or fostering through us.
Complete an enquiry form today to take the first step on your journey to adopting or fostering a child. Alternatively please call 0131 454 3370 (Edinburgh) or 01224 878 158 (Aberdeen) or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you an enquiry form.
We’re also very happy to answer any questions you might have before you decide if you want to take the next step.
St Andrew’s Children’s Society is proud of its strong links to these organisations.
