Becoming a foster carer is a big decision and we know that simply getting in touch to enquire about the process can be a big step. It may have taken a number of years and a lot of careful consideration and research. Here, we look at each stage of the assessment; from enquiry to approval, step-by-step.
All too often, people disqualify themselves from making big changes in their lives. Sometimes it’s down to fear of change, and sometimes its because of false beliefs or misinformation about why something is not possible.
Foster Carer Daniel and his partner Mark have been fostering together for 7 years. Dogs have always been part of their fostering family and they play a valuable role in helping to settle the children they care for, as well as introducing them to boundaries, routine and responsibility.
The sons and daughters of foster carers play a vital role in fostering; they contribute hugely towards the success of fostering placements and make a valuable difference to fostered siblings as they settle into their new home.
We felt honoured to take part in the annual LGBTQ+ Brighton Pride Community Parade again this year; members of our team and Foster Carers joined together to celebrate our current LGBTQ+ foster families and urge others to step forward.
