Children and young people are in need of fostering in Dundee and across Scotland. Emergency, short term and long term placements are available. We offer training and ongoing support.
If you’re considering becoming a foster carer, choose a fostering agency with local teams who will be with you every step.
National Fostering Group is the largest independent fostering agency in the UK with superb agency coverage across all areas – meaning you have the support of a team close to you.
One of the most established fostering agencies in your area, we work with local authorities to place children and young people in homes where they can thrive.
As a foster carer with us, you’ll have unparalleled access to professional support and excellent free training. We want you to thrive too, being the best you can be in your role as foster carer.
On top of this, carers who are fostering in Dundee have a large and active peer network that includes more than a dozen local support groups.
The training is great. We have the option to do face to face or online, which is useful as I work full time along side fostering, so I know I can always fit the training in to my schedule.
The best part of my role is seeing the foster carers who to begin with, may lack confidence or feel they are not doing things quite right, blossom into fostering experts. Seeing the bonds develop between the children and foster families makes everything we do, worth it.
