Have You Ever Considered Fostering?

Be a Foster Carer and Change Lives Forever

Do you have time, patience and understanding to give to children? We need foster carers for children and young people living in the Western Isles who are unable to remain living with their families.

We provide specialist support and training and can provide allowances of up to £194.00 p/wk. There is also the potential career prospect as a fee paid Foster Carer, where qualified and experienced foster carers receive £18,000 per annum plus allowances.

(All fees are currently being reviewed)
