We are needing more foster carers in 2019 - get in touch now and find out more.

We need more people who can provide a loving home and life-changing care for children who can no longer live with their birth families. Could you give a child stability and security and help them feel they belong?

Fife Council's fostering service is for children in Fife and is based in Fife which means that all training and support meetings take place locally. Our family placement team will provide support and training and you will receive a weekly fee.

We are looking for lots of different kinds of people - you can be single, cohabiting, married, in a same sex relationship or in a long term partnership. We are looking for people across a very wide age range and varied backgrounds. Formal qualifications are not needed but experience of caring and working with children is an advantage.

Call us on 01383 602235 or fill in our online form and we will get in touch with you.

Our family placement team is here to listen to you, answer your questions and to help you through every stage of the application process and beyond.

To Foster with Fife Council you should be:

  • Over 21 and have a separate bedroom available for the child/children
  • Medically fit
  • A non-smoker (including all e-cigarettes)

We want to make the best decision for the child, so we're looking for people with a variety of skills and experiences who can meet each child's needs. In particular we need families for sibling groups and older children.
