St Andrew’s Children’s Society

St Andrew’s Children’s Society is an independent adoption and foster care agency with bases in Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

We have been helping families prepare to adopt since we first opened in Edinburgh in 1922. We now provide adoption and foster care services throughout the central belt and North-East Scotland and welcome adoption and fostering enquiries from all members of the community, including the LGBT+ community and single people, and all faiths.

Helping vulnerable children 1922 – the present day

In all the years of St Andrew’s Children’s Society’s existence it has undergone many changes but the ethos that originally guided those people in 1922 to organise themselves so as to meet the needs of vulnerable children by ensuring that suitable, nurturing and well prepared families were available to care for them is as strong today as ever.
