Foster with us

Become a foster carer with us and make a real difference to the lives of children in need. We urgently need foster carers and host family foster carers who can provide children and young people with safe, nurturing and loving homes.

Join our foster carers across Edinburgh, the Lothians, Fife, and the Borders and get paid to do something where you will gain a real sense of achievement. Our foster carers tell us you need to have patience and resilience to be a foster carer, but the rewards you get from supporting the children in your care far outweigh the challenges.

We have a care scheme to suit you – fostering long or short-term or as a host family foster carer for unaccompanied migrants escaping war and persecution. In return we will offer you a high standard of training, support and financial payment.
