Edinburgh’s Children. Can you care for them?We think you can. You just don’t know it yet!
In this pack we’ve included details of how you go about becominga carer. As you can imagine, children need different things. We needcarers who provide different types of care.In Edinburgh we believe that it’s best if families are helped to staytogether. However, we also know that there are times when childrenand young people can’t live in their own home –or might need extrahelp to do so.Our children range in age from infants to older teenagers. Theymay need care for a few days, weeks or months. Some will need analternative family for all their childhood. Some may be adopted andbecome part of their new family for life. Children need stabilityand guidance. They need help to understand what’s happened tothem and reassurance about their future.
Our carers provide these things
you can too
