Fostering information.

We provide comprehensive information about foster care and help you to reduce the risk of choosing the wrong fostering agency in Glasgow.

Different fostering types.

Just like people, Fostering Agencies are not all the same. They have different support, allowances, quality of training, and access to respite care and support groups. Not all agencies foster babies, some prefer to look after teenagers, some agencies expect you to be at home full time, others are happy if you have another job.

Factors to consider.

Before deciding to become a foster carer there are a few things that should be considered. Along with the training and support provided by the foster agencies, you should also check if you have a personal support system with friends and family that can support you going under stressful situations as all foster children are not the same and as a foster carer, you may have to tackle difficult situations.

According to your family and personal circumstances, the age group of foster kids needs to be considered. The needs of children vary based on their age and understanding which is why you should be prepared to be flexible. Flexibility to work with social workers is important as they visit on a regular basis. Foster carers need to be comfortable communicating with the biological parents of the foster child, as that might be a part of the job.

Is it time for a change?

Do you want to make a positive change in your life? Do you want to experience the satisfaction of keeping children from more harm and seeing them settle down and start thriving?

Then become a foster carer and feel the sense of fulfillment that doing something worthwhile brings, and be the person who can make a difference in a child’s life.
