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

Join our foster care team who live across Edinburgh, the Lothians, Fife, and the Borders. Whether you would like to foster long or short term, we have a care scheme to suit you. We need loving foster homes for young people of all ages, from babies to 18 years.

Our foster carers provide a safe and caring home, helping children towards a happy future. In return we offer training, fees and allowances and 24/7 support.
