Foster care stories

Tim and Phil's Story

Tim and Phil's* fostering story began in 2011, and they have been permanent carers with Swiis ever since. They came to the Permanence Service to give themselves the opportunity to have a family life.

“Being a same sex couple, having a family the conventional way was never on the cards. Having thought long and hard we realised that providing a stable family environment could be achieved through fostering. We have been with Swiis for 5 years now. We initially provided some respite care which confirmed that this was the route that we definitely wanted to go down.

The Permanence Team matched us perfectly with 2 kids, who we now class as our own. Although it's not always been plain sailing, we are pleased to say that it is a decision that was one of the best we have ever made. We couldn't think of our life any other way. The support that we have received from Swiis has been fantastic. There is always someone at the end of the phone, should we need it.

Although our family circumstances are unique, we have never been treated any different and for this we are truly grateful. We would certainly recommend this to anyone who can offer a safe, stable and loving home for children who need it.”

Swiis Foster Care Scotland prides itself on achieving positive outcomes for some of the most vulnerable and complex young people.
