About us

Local Fostering was launched to meet the growing need for foster carers in Sussex.

Foster children

Why choose us

Local Fostering is committed to making a positive and lasting difference to the lives of vulnerable children and young people. Based in Sussex, we offer convenient and effective support to our foster carers and the children in their care.

Our local focus

We have strong links with local authorities who often struggle to find suitable homes for local children. This can mean that children are placed in locations far from their home area, or separated from their siblings.

We believe that it’s important to support the local community and are involved in events that support local causes. Take a look at our news and events to see how Local Fostering has helped in your community.

Our aim

Local Fostering understands that children who come into care have had a difficult start in life and need stability and understanding right from the beginning of their placement. We aim to offer nurturing homes that will meet the needs of each child, making them feel reassured, valued and optimistic about the future.
