Care Visions Fostering Scotland are a Scottish-owned fostering service. We are interested in progressive care that helps children and young people move forward by creating positive environments for them to thrive in.
It’s important that you have all the information you need to start your fostering journey. Our “Becoming a foster carer” section contains a range of information, from fees and allowances to the specific training you’ll receive with Care Visions Fostering Scotland.
You can also read our blog, where you’ll find some real stories from real carers along with the latest news and developments from us.
These are the things that make us, us.
We are aware of the feelings and experiences of others. We care through relationships based on empathy, warmth and affection to restore and maintain trust and hope.
We live by our values and our actions demonstrate our commitment to them. We nurture potential and challenge appropriately.
We value others and will act in a way that communicates this. We recognise our differences and celebrate them. We listen to and care for each other.
We aim to protect people from harm. We recognise the impact trauma has and that sustained therapeutic relationships can have a positive impact. Our work is trauma-informed and based on attachment theory.
The 10 Year Anniversary Awards happen each year to honour those who have been fostering with us for a decade. They celebrate the valuable contributions foster carers make to children and young people’s lives. This year we are celebrating long service from 7 Foster Carers from across Scotland.
If you are interested in fostering, it can help to learn the differences between long and short term placements and the benefits of each. Find out more here.
