Fostering

Fostering

The difference you can make to a child's life by becoming a foster carer is immeasurable.

It is almost impossible to value the importance of a safe, loving and stable home for many children who have never experienced this before.

As a foster carer you will be able to make a positive difference in the lives of the children you care for.

You can help progress their education, improve their social skills and enhance their self-esteem. Most importantly you can help them be healthy and happy by making sure they feel safe and cared for.

The benefit of fostering through Falkirk Council is that all of our carers and children are from the Falkirk Council area. This means that although a child may be accommodated by the local authority they are still able to stay in their local community and maintain better links with their families, schools and friends.

We especially need carers for teenagers and sibling groups as well as long term foster carers.

For more information you can contact the Fostering & Adoption Team using the contact details shown opposite or our online form|.

The team will be happy to provide more information on what fostering could mean to you, and will talk you through the next steps. If you're sending an e-mail to us please include your postal address and a telephone number so that we can contact you.
