Established in 1815 and based in Dundee, we are one of Scotland’s oldest children’s charities. We have a long history of meeting the needs of children and young people during times of constant social and economic change.
We are an independent fostering agency, a provider of aftercare services including housing support and supported accommodation for care leavers.
At Carolina House Trust we firmly believe that every child and young person deserves the opportunity to reach their potential and enjoy a safe and nurturing childhood. Our focus is on providing positive outcomes for all children and young people by providing them with excellent care and personalised, dedicated support from our carers and staff.
We offer fostering and supported lodgings placements in family settings, matched with a child or young person’s individual needs. We support foster care placements from across Scotland, with the majority of our placements based in Fife, Angus, Clackmannanshire and Dundee and we are looking to expand into other areas.
For young people leaving care, the Trust’s Carolina Mews in Dundee provides a home environment for young people who have left care to gain confidence and employment skills before embarking on an independent life, and setting up a home.
