On Saturday 14th October Foster Care Associates Scotland celebrates its 15th Birthday! We can’t quite believe it’s been 15 years since FCA Scotland was founded, by a foster carer and a social worker. As a fostering agency we have certainly come a long way since then and now and as Foster Care Associates Scotland reaches its 15th year our ambition for children’s services in Scotland has never been stronger.
Over the past 15 years Foster Care Associates Scotland has recruited, supervised and supported over 500 new foster carer households, significantly increasing the pool of foster carers in Scotland, and over this time we have supported the plans for nearly 1,500 children and young people.
We have lots of exciting things happening to help us celebrate our 15th birthday year, including; a new tartan designed by one of our young people, a new kilt for our mascot Jimmy McFoster, a tartan car which you might see out and about across Scotland and lots of events taking place over the next year. The events are a great way to celebrate our achievements with our foster carers and young people and give us the opportunity to reflect on our journey over the years.
We very much look forward to the next 15 years, with our services continuing to develop and diversify to support innovation for vulnerable children and their families across Scotland. We look forward to continuing to make a positive and lasting difference to children, families and communities across Scotland.
