Care Visions provides all the specialist training you will need, as well as a financial allowance to help support your fostering. We need caring people, with the life experience, time and stability, to offer a child in need a supportive home environment.
Successful Foster Carers are people who have these essential qualities:
If you possess these qualities, then Care Visions Fostering Scotland can provide you with the training and support to become a first-rate Foster Carer. Some of our Foster Carers offer short or medium term placements, looking after a number of children over time, while others have long term placements. Whether short or long term, we regularly get feedback from Foster Carers that fostering is among the most rewarding and fulfilling things they have ever done in their lives.
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.
