Fostering and Adoption

We care for West Lothian's children

We need caring and committed local people to foster babies, children and young people.

  • Some children need to be looked after for a few days or months.
  • Some children need to be looked after for all of their childhood.
  • Lots of different kinds of people can foster.
  • Foster carers can make a huge difference in a child's life.
Foster carers support children to feel safe and nurtured.
Foster carers can come from all kinds of ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds.
Children who need foster families are aged 0-16.
