Fostering in Scotland

Welcome to Fostering People Scotland

Rated as EXCELLENT by the Care Inspectorate for Quality of Care & Support and Quality of Leadership & Management with no recommendations or requirements.


Thinking of fostering in Scotland? We know that becoming a foster carer is a big decision. So when you choose to foster a child with us, you’re guaranteed the best possible support.

That’s because our team work with foster carers within local communities across central and eastern Scotland. In fact, we’re currently looking for foster carers in Dundee, Aberdeen and Fife, as well as Edinburgh, Angus, Perth and Kinross, Stirling, Falkirk Aberdeenshire and the Lothians, North Lanarkshire and Clackmannanshire.

Your local support network

We pride ourselves on our local and friendly approach. In fact, our experienced Scotland fostering team works hard to ensure you receive the support you need to change children’s lives. From regular support groups to our local training courses and out of hours service, we’re always here for you – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

It’s why a recent review by the Care Inspectorate graded the care we offer as ‘EXCELLENT’.
