Growing demand for foster carers in West Sussex

West Sussex County Council’s Fostering Service is appealing for people to help give a local child a temporary home in a bid to recruit more foster carers.

With just shy of 700 children current in foster care in the county, the authority is hosting a number of information evening throughout September and October to encourage adults who would like to make a difference and enjoy working with people and children to consider training in the field.

Stephen Hillier, cabinet member for Children and Young People, said: “Our marvellous foster carers are a huge and incredibly important part of our ability to provide the best possible care and outcomes for some of our children and young people. We therefore warmly welcome all enquiries from residents who are interested in offering a loving home and are constantly striving to provide good all-round support to foster carers.”
