Apply to be a foster carer

NFA Scotland

We’ve been finding adoring foster parents to improve the lives of vulnerable Scottish children for decades. Could you join them and help make a difference to the hundreds of young people across Scotland still in need of a nurturing family home?

Fostering in Scotland

From a 24-hour fostering advice line to your dedicated supervising social worker, fostering in Scotland with the NFA means you’ll always get the help and support you need at every stage of your fostering adventure.  We’re proud to work with a close-knit community of foster families from across Scotland, with our team of regional experts always on hand to welcome new foster carers into the fold.

Whether you’re planning on fostering in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Fife, Dundee, Edinburgh, Perth or anywhere in between, we can give you all the information and advice you need to start your very own foster family. Our headquarters are in the heart of Grangemouth, but we work with most local authorities in Scotland and have dedicated training venues and support group centres across the country – so a helping hand is never far away.
