Fostering in Lanarkshire
Foster Care Agency

Interested in fostering in North Lanarkshire or South Lanarkshire? We're urgently looking for more kind and caring people to join our local foster parent team, so we can build brighter futures for more children and teenagers in foster care.

Our Lanarkshire fostering team support foster families across the region, including Hamilton, East Kilbride, Carluke, Douglas, Cumbernauld and more.

As an independent fostering agency with over 20 years of experience, we take great care when placing children with foster parents so they receive the very best care that’s tailored to their needs. Generally, the children who come into our care are aged between 5 to 18; many have experienced some kind of neglect, abuse or family dysfunction and need a stable, loving home until they're able to return home or move on to independence.

Our Lanarkshire foster families are supported by a local dedicated team of social workers and support staff, as well as a 24/7 helpline with a qualified social worker. The team also arrange regular local events and support groups, so our foster families always feel connected to others in the area. Foster parents also receive regular, quality training which occurs both virtually and face-to-face (travelling to our Edinburgh or Glasgow office).

Proud of the outcomes we achieve

We achieve successful, stable foster care placements through building strong relationships with our foster families; by understanding their strengths, vulnerabilities, family dynamics and training and support requirements, we’re able to carefully match their skillset with the needs of a child.
