Fostering

Introduction

Thank you for taking the time to find out about fostering in Moray.

Moray has a long history of providing foster placements to children, going back to the mid 1800’s when fostering started in Scotland.

By the late 1800’s and into the 1900’s the farms, crofts and sea ports of Moray became home to large numbers of children from the Glasgow area. The fresh air of the North East was seen as a positive contrast to the pollution of the newly industrialising city.   

Modern fostering has changed dramatically; Social workers try to keep children in their local community and work to maintain contact with families.

If you would like to find out more about becoming a Foster carer or would like to help a particular child please contact us using the details on this page, or use our General Enquiry Online Form.
