Our carers

Our carers are at the heart of everything we do, and we know how important it is for them to receive local support services.  Local Fostering is staffed by local people, using local venues and facilities to ensure that all our carers can easily access nearby groups, support services and social activities.

The opinions and feedback from our carers have been the main factor in shaping the service we offer, so join us at this exciting time and be part of growing a new kind of foster care service in Sussex.
