Aberdeenshire’s Family Placement Service

Aberdeenshire’s Family Placement Service comprises an adoption team, a kinship care team and 2 fostering teams. These teams recruit, assess and support people who adopt, foster or care for the children of a relative. The teams also provide learning opportunities for their adopters, foster carers or kinship carers.

The teams within the Family Placement Service are committed to working in the best interests of Aberdeenshire’s children and in providing effective integrated services through improved planning and service delivery based on identified assessment of need.

The Family Placement Service complies with the National Care Standards for Adoption Agencies and the National Care Standards for Foster Care and Family Placement Services.
