Could you help us support children and young people living in South Ayrshire? We’re looking for dedicated carers to help make a big difference to their lives and ensure they can continue to grow up in their local communities.

There are lots of different ways you can help us achieve this, you might have an existing family or be on your own, you might be able to help for a few hours every week or make a bigger commitment, whatever your situation we would like to hear from you.

The following is a list of the types of care we provide and we are looking for carers to help us deliver these services. Click the links to find out more and then feel free to get in touch for an informal chat.

We are running a number of sessions across South Ayrshire where you can drop in and find out more about becoming a carer.

You can find out about the different types of care available and meet experienced staff who will be happy to answer your questions.

You could also meet carers and young people who have been through the care system to find out about their experiences.
