Supporting children and young people today for their tomorrow

We have been providing positive outcomes for children and young people for over 200 years.

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.

Help us make a difference by volunteering or becoming a foster carer.

What makes us different?

Carolina House Trust is an ethically focused organisation. We place quality above quantity, with the children, young people, carers and the staffs’ well being at the forefront of our service. We are a relatively small organisation which is ideal for encouraging lasting relationships built upon trust and respect to grow between our staff, carers, children and young people.
