Online Fostering Information Event

Online Fostering Information Event

Join us at lunchtime on Monday 6th February to hear all about our new fostering service!

Are you or someone you know interested in finding out about fostering?

Scottish Adoption is expanding to include a fostering service and we would like to invite you along to an online lunchtime fostering information event on Monday 6th of February from 12.30pm to 2pm. 

You will have an opportunity to hear about the differences (and similarities) between fostering and adoption, and about the process for becoming approved as a foster carer. We will have an experienced foster carer available to answer your questions and representatives from a Local Authority to tell you about some of the children currently waiting.

You can sign up for free via eventbrite here

If you have any questions about the event please do email david@scottishadoption.org 

The highlight for those attending previous information evenings has always been the opportunity to hear directly from our parents. Below is a selection of the feedback we have had from previous events:
“We found the info meeting really useful and informative and a great way to make the idea of adoption more of a reality in terms of it being an option for us. We have talked about looking into it for a while now and it was a really good way to get lots of information and meet the team of people from the agency. Hearing the adoptive dads talk about their experiences was definitely the highlight.”
“It was a very informative night and put a lot of thoughts in my head regarding my future, and how to go about setting these into motion. I’m very glad I came along and felt the staff explained everything and the personal stories from the adopters were the highlight. As a result of the event my partner and myself will be filling out an initial request form with Scottish Adoption to move things forward from this point.”
“Edinburgh event last night was so helpful. Great to see so many other people looking to adopt! Hearing the experiences of the gay dads was good, generally I’m really glad we went!”
“We thought the evening was excellent. Very informative and also relaxed so no pressure on anyone to make decisions or to do anything. We both felt very relaxed, and felt we received a really good overview of what the process involves. We especially enjoyed hearing the adopters speak about their own experiences and how they felt throughout the process. To see their obvious joy and happiness was definitely an inspiration to us both. We’ve already completed our initial enquiry form and have had a response from your office.”
