Foster care provides vital care to children and young people and is at the heart of our communities, enabling children to stay with foster families, local to everything they are familiar with already. Highland Council need more people to come forward and consider fostering.

We need foster carers who can look after infants, younger children, teenagers and brothers and sisters to keep them together, in an emergency and on a temporary basis or provide respite for children in their local community, who have a disability. We also need permanent carers for older children so they can remain with these carers for the remainder of their childhood.

Our foster carers also support each other and share skills and expertise.  

This Foster Care Fortnight, Highland Council wants to celebrate the strength and resilience of our fostering communities, and all they do to ensure children are cared for and supported to thrive.  

Please follow the link on our website to find out more.www.highland.gov.uk/fosteringandadoption

If you would like to meet some of the team and find out more about fostering and respite, we will be holding some online information evenings through Microsoft Teams in June.

To register your interest in the information session please email  fostering@highland.gov.uk  and include your name, address and contact number and a link to the session will be sent.

Foster Care Fortnight™ is The Fostering Network's annual campaign to raise the profile of fostering. It is also the UK's biggest foster carer recruitment campaign.
