Services

Barnardos Scotland Fostering (Aberdeen) provides children with full time foster homes when it is not possible for them to live with their own family. The service also provides short break (respite) care to support birth families and full time foster carers.

Barnardo's welcomes new carers and provides:

  • placements for children of all ages, including disabled and black and minority ethnic children
  • a comprehensive preparation and training programme
  • 24 hour support and financial rewards

The team specialise in finding families for disabled children of all ages and for children with social and emotional difficulties.

To provide the most nurturing environment for children the services aim to match the right foster carer with the right foster child. This often includes finding foster families from a variety of backgrounds or circumstances, who are able to give the child care that is consistent with their cultural background.
