Join Our Fostering Family
If you’ve not heard of Kibble, they are one of Scotland’s oldest charities and today a leading social enterprise who support at risk children and young people.
Their fostering services support young people aged 5+ who are unable to live with their birth parents through no fault of their own.
Through their range of services Kibble support young people to overcome past traumas and lead healthy, happy and fulfilled lives. Services include:
• Residential Care
• Secure Care
• Primary and Secondary Education
• Intensive Fostering Services
• Young Workforce Development
• Outreach Services
• Preventative and Rehabilitative Community Services
But to do all of this, they need YOU! They need Foster Carers to provide stable, loving homes for care-experienced young people. If you can be a friendly face to provide care and support, welcome a young person into your family home, and be patient and caring even at the toughest of times, they’d love to hear from you.
Kibble works hand-in-hand with foster carers at every step of the way, providing 24/7 support, full training, generous fees and allowances, and respite care. By fostering with Kibble, you become part of a ‘fostering family’ and will always have a great support network around you.
