Dundee is perhaps most famous for being the birthplace of Oor Willie, The Broons and The Beano. What they all have in common is pride in being part of a loving Dundonian family of all shapes and sizes in an amazing community. We are looking for foster families in Dundee to look after the city’s Bairns.

Who can foster in Dundee?

All applications in Dundee are considered, regardless of age, gender, martial 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 supportive home environment.

Fostering for the long or short term

Cost of living has increased and we now live in a post Covid world. With these changing circumstances we understand that there is more to think about when considering to foster a child. Short term fostering can be a way to try fostering and see if it works for you. Long term fostering can then be considered if you wish, however if you want to stick with short term fostering this is fine too.

We can work to your timeline

We can guide you through the fostering process as quickly or as slowly as you like. If you are looking to foster quickly if you can communicate with us regularly each week we can work at your pace. We use phone, Whatsapp, Zoom, Facetime or whatever technology suits you to keep communication up.
