Children are referred to us from your local authority, and we work in partnership to ensure the very best matching of foster carers for the young people in our care.

Within Aberdeen City there is a need for foster families who can look after children of primary school age and above, and who also are able to care for brothers and sisters to ensure they can stay together. Our Foster Carers tell us that fostering is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling things they have ever done in their lives.

Who can foster in Aberdeen?

All applications in Aberdeen are considered, regardless of age, gender, marital status, religious persuasion, sexual identity or nationality.  We need caring people, with the life experience, time and stability, to offer a child in need a loving family home.

Short & long term fostering

We understand that with cost of living increases and coping with life post Covid that there is more to think about than ever before when considering to foster a child. Depending on your situation, short term fostering can be a way to see if fostering works for you. This can then be an optional doorway into longer term fostering – or just to stick to short term fostering if that works for you best.

If you are thinking of fostering fairly soon we can help facilitate this goal if you are able to communicate with us regularly every week so that we can help push you along on your journey. We can use a mix of phone, Whatsapp, Facetime, Zoom – whatever technology suits you so that we can guide you in the process of becoming a foster parent at a pace that works for you.
