Fostering
with Falkirk Council

At Falkirk Council our aim is to always keep children, who can no longer live with their families, local and provide them with life changing care and a loving and nurturing home environment.

We know that being a foster carer is a life changing experience and one of the most rewarding jobs you can ever do. At Falkirk Council we give the opportunity to be the best you can be by offering unmatched training and support throughout your fostering journey while you provide a loving, nurturing environment for children from the local area.

We pride ourselves on the support we offer throughout your journey, from the initial contact all the way through to approval and of course once you have been approved and start to foster.

If you have been thinking about fostering, have any questions and believe that you can make a difference then we, and the many children in Falkirk and surrounding areas that need a caring, nurturing home environment would love to hear from you.

“We know our carer is our safe person, she helps when we need it.”

“Being in foster care put me back on track and boosted my confidence”
