about us

Foster Care Connect is an independent fostering agency set up in 2004 , based in offices in Galashiels. We support children and foster carers mainly in the Scottish Borders, Edinburgh, Lothian and Fife areas, but accept referrals for children and young people from Local Authorities throughout Scotland.

We are a small, child-centred, independent fostering agency, and take the time to get to know our carers and children really well, which means we can offer high quality personal support. As an agency, we specialise in placing children with complex needs with carers on a long-term/permanent basis. We also provide short term placements and respite placements.

Foster Care Connect is a well-established fostering agency with very good Care Inspectorate reports and strong relationships with Scottish local authorities.

Our Director Helen Fraser is a member of the British Association of Social Workers (BASW), and Foster Care Connect upholds the BASW Code of Ethics.
