Foster with Fife Council

Find out how foster care changes the futures of vulnerable children and the people who choose to foster - look at our website and fill in our enquiry form if you would like us to get in touch with you.

All our training and support meetings take place locally in Fife. You will receive a weekly fee while you are available for a placement.  This will be paid to you whether you have a child placed with you or not and our local family placement team will give you regular support.


Play a vital role caring for children and young people who can’t live with their birth family. Give them a sense of belonging and all the benefits of being part of a family.

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. In particular we need families for sibling groups and older children.

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

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