Fostering with FCA Scotland provides a number of benefits. One of these benefits includes working with our fantastically caring team at our Prestwick Office. Our team are dedicated to providing support and training to all of the potential Foster Carers who walk through our doors.
We cover three main areas within our Prestwick office where our team work hard to provide a stable home for young people and children throughout the region. We also partner with a number of Local Authorities who refer foster children and young people to us to help them find a safe and happy home.
We are currently recruiting for all types of placements in:
We organise monthly support groups at our Prestwick office or at a local venue for all carers based in the Ayrshire area and that includes our training programme. Staff and carers also hold events for the carers at the office including; coffee mornings and fundraising events, these allow all the carers in that area to get together for a coffee and a chat as well as get to know the FCA Staff. WE recently held a Mexican themed event, allowing all the carers in that area to get together for some Mexican street food and a chat with each other as well as FCA Staff.
The Prestwick office is also a hub for our children and young people who live in the Ayrshire area, giving them somewhere to meet up locally. 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.
You can find out more about our fundraising activities or recruitment events in your local area on our news and events page or to begin your journey with us, fill out our quick and easy questionnaire to see if you are eligible.
