According to Ofsted in November 2021, despite the growth in the number of fostering households in recent years, the sector is still unable to keep up with the demand. The number of carers increased by 4% during the same period of time when the number of children requiring care has increased by 11%.
asphaleia fostering are looking to increase our team of fostering families and this week we are running a campaign to promote the opportunity for prospective carers to have coffee with our agency manager, Kim.
We'd be grateful for your support if you could share our posts and help us connect with more people who live across Sussex.
We are a Worthing-based agency but would love to have fostering families that live in other towns in Sussex, such as Eastbourne, Brighton & Hove, Hastings, Haywards Heath, Chichester, Bognor Regis, Horsham, and Littlehampton.
