Children's welfare is at the heart of the Brighton and Hove's Fostering Service.
Our aim is to provide safe, secure and stable homes for children, who for whatever reason are unable to live with their own family.
We strongly believe that children are entitled to grow up as part of a loving and caring family who can meet their needs during child hood and beyond. Our foster carers are an essential part of this plan.
Brighton and Hove Fostering Service aims to provide a diverse and wide range of safe, caring and stable foster homes to meet the needs of our children in care in. The Service works to support foster carers and their families to help meet the needs of these children.
The Service supports well over 100 foster carers offering many different types of fostering. At any one time there are over 200 children living in Brighton and Hove foster homes.
Our staff team are experienced and are able to offer skilled advice. We are proud in Brighton and Hove of the support that we are able to provide to our foster carers.
We have received a very positive recent report from Ofsted that rated the Fostering Service as 'outstanding'.
There is a national need for foster homes and Brighton and Hove Fostering Service is keen to receive enquiries from people who are interested in becoming foster carers.
