Fife Council is urgently looking to recruit more Foster Carers in 2013 – could you be one of them?

Life can throw up all kinds of difficulties – but children can’t deal with them alone.

Could you take a child into your home – you don’t need any special qualifications. It doesn’t matter if you are single, married, cohabiting, with or without your own children, renting or homeowner, in work or not. As long as you’re over 21, with an understanding of what children need, lots of patience and imagination, and a warm inviting home with a spare bedroom, you could make all the difference.

We believe that children have the right to live in a family. If they are not able to live with their birth family, fostering can provide a positive alternative.

Fife Council will provide you with a full range of support and training, including a weekly fee and allowances, to help you care for your foster child.
