Thinking about fostering?

Would you like to speak to someone about fostering a child on a permanent basis?

Perhaps you’ve fostered already or are completely new to fostering?

Then come along to our next Fostering monthly drop-in event in our Edinburgh office to speak to one of our social workers about fostering on a permanent basis through us.

What will happen at the Fostering monthly drop-in event?

You can ask as many questions as you like to help you decide if fostering is right for you.

We can tell you about:

  • The fostering process
  • The children waiting to be fostered
  • The very competitive fees and allowances we offer our foster carers
  • The excellent support available to all our foster carers

We can also give you some information to take away with you on fostering a child on a permanent basis through us.
