Supporting children and young people in our foster care community

We have been caring for children and young people for over 200 years.

We offer fostering and continuing care in family settings, matched with a child or young person’s individual needs.  We work with foster carers across Scotland. The majority of our carers are based in Fife, Angus, Clackmannanshire and Dundee.

In July 2022 we launched our Supported Care service. We are are recruiting Host Families to support separated children in Dundee.

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 foster carers and staff.

Established in 1815, 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. Once an orphanage, we are now a foster agency.

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.
