Excellent allowances and benefits

Our allowances recognise your hard work and commitment and help cover the costs of caring for children – including holidays, clothes and little treats along the way. Our highly competitive fostering allowance package also includes  a free membership to FosterTalk, an organisation which offers support helplines and guidance as well as great member offers and deals.

Foster Carer 
Appreciation Day

We know our foster carers do an incredible job looking after the children and young people in their care, and we want to show them just how much they’re appreciated. So every October we say a big thank to all of our foster carers by celebrating Foster Carer Appreciation Day. We organise a special local event for our foster carers and also take the time to recognise and acknowledge the role of birth children of foster carers who too play a vital role within the fostering family.

National foster carer forum

We value the contribution our foster carers make and we’re always here to listen, to help and to engage you in shaping the future of our service. That’s why we have a foster carer forum and a network of carer reps. Every three months, carer reps from across the UK come together at the National Carer Forum to share good practice, learn from one other and talk directly to our senior leadership team.


As one of Scotland’s largest fostering agencies, we regularly receive referrals for new foster placements. Our expertise at matching children with foster parents means we enjoy a high success rate for stable placements, with over 95% of all the children we place remaining with their foster parents for six months or more.

Overall, FCA Scotland is a great choice for people in Scotland who’d enjoy the sense of involvement that comes from joining a large and long-established fostering agency with unrivalled resources, and that’s committed to listening to and supporting everyone on the team.
