Fostering

Foster for Inverclyde

Foster for Inverclyde

Inverclyde is looking for foster carers to provide a loving and safe placement for children and young people who are unable to live with their own families.

Who can Foster?

Foster Carers can come from a range of different backgrounds and different life experiences. All we ask is that you are committed to providing a nurturing and secure home to help children and young people grow and develop.

What Types of Fostering is there?

Fostering can be both long or short term, temporary, permanent or short breaks.

Currently we are also looking for carers that could provide short breaks for children and young people in our care.

Support for Foster Carers

We offer a range of supports to Inverclyde Foster Carers.  These include

  • A dedicated Family placement social worker who will provide professional help and advice.
  • Regular training
  • Regular Support groups where you have the opportunity to meet with other foster carers.
  • 24hr support where needed
  • Membership of the Fostering Network who provide independent legal advice, support and guidance to foster carers nationwide
  • All foster carers receive an allowance and an additional fee based on skill level.
