Fostering in Glasgow
Foster Care Agency

Everything we do is focused on ensuring we can give children the chance to live in a family where they’re valued, encouraged and given exactly the support they need to reach their full potential. We take extra care when matching, so children can live in a family environment that suits their needs and where they can really feel at home. 

All of our offices are rated as 'Excellent' or 'Very Good' by the Care Inspectorate, demonstrating our standards of care provided to children. Our Glasgow fostering team supports foster families, children and teenagers living across Glasgow, Paisley, Renfrewshire, Lanarkshire, Dunbartonshire, Inverclyde, Argyle and Bute.

We've been working with foster families across Scotland for more than 20 years and have local established teams of social workers all across the region, supporting families with fortnightly supervision, regular support groups and local family events.

We also deliver ongoing training both face-to-face (with travel to either our Glasgow or Edinburgh office) and virtually, so you'll never stop learning. Plus, you'll have access to a 24/7 helpline with a qualified social worker, so you'll never be more than a phone call away from non-judgemental, professional advice.

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.

Successful outcomes always start with the quality of the matching – and we take extra care when placing a child with a family to ensure a positive and rewarding experience for all.


"Our ethos at Fosterplus is very much around providing continuity to the children and young people we care for, so they feel safe, secure and able to build nurturing relationships with their foster families while maintaining positive connections with their birth family too.

We achieve this by carefully matching children and young people with foster parents who can meet their individual needs and provide a loving home for as long as it's needed. We also ensure that our foster parents receive the support they need to overcome challenges and establish long-lasting relationships with the children they care for.

We're fully committed to #KeepingthePromise and are working hard to make ongoing enhancements to the services we deliver to children and young people in our care." Chrise Grundy Hoban, Head of Operations

Irene's story

Irene and her family joined Fosterplus over 6 years ago and have been caring for a brother and sister on a long-term basis ever since.

While Irene admits that it hasn't always been easy, she says that fostering has brought her family so many happy memories and can't believe the positive influence it's had on her own daughter.
