asphaleia fostering is an agency that provides safe and nurturing foster care placements for children under the care of West Sussex. Uniquely embedded in the asphaleia organisation whose mission is to impact as many disadvantaged children and young people as we can, our foster carers benefit from being able to access services being delivered across the organisation. Including CSE intervention, further education, and mental health support.  

Fostering enables people to make a positive difference to a child's life, promoting their future growth and development through nurturing stable foster placements.

A Happy Family

M was welcomed into the family. I imagine at times this would have been difficult for him, bringing up feelings of the loss of his own family, and the [asphaleia] carers have somehow managed the balance of support and knowing when to step back, allowing him space and to become the resilient, kind and caring young man he has grown to be.
