Interested in fostering?

Become a foster carer with the City of Edinburgh Council and get paid to do a job you’ll love! Top ten reasons to foster with us.

Join our foster carers from across Edinburgh, the Lothians, Fife, and the Borders. We have a care scheme to suit you – fostering long or short term.

We need homes for children of all ages, from babies to 21 years. In return we offer training, fees and allowances and 24/7 support.
