Becoming a Foster Carer with FCA Scotland has many positives. Here at our Cambuslang head office in Glasgow, where we have been for the last four years, we have a great team to help and support you to become a Foster Carer for children and young people across West Scotland.
Monthly support groups are held for all carers at their local office or in an external venue, there are many training events and Team Parenting® meetings to attend and we also hold a Men Who Foster group at our Cambuslang and Rosyth offices bi-monthly.
Covering a number of areas within West of Scotland, the Glasgow team are dedicated to helping children and young people find a safe, stable home in which they can be happy in. We partner with a number of Local Authorities within the region who refer children and young people to us in order to find a happy home.
The areas we cover in West of Scotland within our regional office include:
We are currently recruiting for all types of placements in these areas.
We run a variety of events for our children and young people throughout the year, from trips to the zoo, cinema or laser tag, all chosen by the young people themselves. We also hold a number of events for our carers and their families at their local office throughout the year, giving our carers, children and young people and staff the opportunity to meet.
There’s always lot going on at our head office in Cambuslang from our Burns Supper fundraising events to our 500 mile challenge; raising money for Foster Care India by aiming to walk 500 miles. Our fundraising events will generally always involve cake and we have often been referred to as FCA = Food Constantly Available, – any excuse.
You can find out more about our fundraising activities or recruitment events in your local area on our news and events page.
