To celebrate LGBT fostering and adoption week, we chat to Chris and Kieran about their experiences as foster parents for over 20 years. Chris and Kieran foster with Brighton and Hove City Council and have fostered 11 young people long term as well as supported children in numerous short term, emergency and respite placements. They went onto adopt one of their foster children who has since got married and had a baby. They have seen difficult children transform before their eyes and have had bucketful’s of tears and laughter over the years.
We're working closely with local communities and forming partnerships to provide a welcome for those seeking sanctuary in Brighton & Hove. Here are some of the ways that you can help.
Simple acts of kindness
This is something we can all do, talk to the parents of the new child at school pickup, find out more about the different communities in your neighbourhood, smile at a stranger, offer to give directions to someone who is looking a bit lost.
