Fostering in Sussex

Have you ever considered becoming a foster parent? At any given time, there are children and young people who need safe and caring homes in the Sussex area and Capstone is actively seeking East and West Sussex foster carers who can help fill our urgent requirements for caring homes.

There are many different types of fostering. Sometimes there is an emergency placement while the child’s home is assessed and arrangements are made with the birth family. Emergency placements can be extended to short-term, which then may evolve into long-term fostering. Sometimes, a special needs foster home is required. Sometimes it is necessary to place a parent and child together so that the baby is protected while the young parent(s) learn how to care for the infant.

It’s not possible to list all the types of arrangements because each child is different and has unique needs. Yet they are similar in that they have to feel valued and safe. There is currently an increasing demand for foster parents in the Sussex area.

If you choose to work with Capstone Foster Care, you will be helping young people in need simply by maintaining stability and consistency for them. If they can be placed in homes in locations with which they are already familiar, it makes the transition a lot less traumatic. They can maintain contact with the important people and resources in their lives.

Often, these important people will include their siblings, whom they may come into care with. It’s always a very good thing when we find carers with enough space to take in a sibling group. Since each child in care deserves a separate bedroom to call their own, we need homes with a couple of extra bedrooms so the siblings can be together.

Capstone has the information you need to assist in taking the first steps to this rewarding career. We provide professional training and complete support. When you look after children there is a social worker on call for any issues that arise in the placement. You also have a full range of support services and excellent financial support. All that we ask is that you are in good health, have patience and compassion, the ability to pass a DBS check, and of course, have the space for a young person (or persons) in need.

Capstone’s team is small, local, positive, and charismatic. We are available 24/7 and eager to share our energy and passion for improving the lives of young people with you.

If you would like to find out more about fostering in Sussex and learn about the process and the benefits, give us a call on 01322 629 260 and we’ll happily answer any questions you may have. Alternatively, you can complete our online enquiry form, and a member of our team will call you back.
