An Appeal From Blue Sky Fostering
Local independent agency Blue Sky Fostering are in need of more Foster Carers to place local, vulnerable children and young people in the area. The agency, rated Outstanding by Ofsted on four consecutive occasions, has a local office in Portslade.
There is a rising need for all sorts of placements including teenagers and sibling groups. This also includes Therapeutically Led Care (TLC) placements, which offers extensive training and support, combining additional therapy and foster care for children and young people, who have suffered abuse, trauma and poor attachment.
People of any background can be a Foster Carer; all you need is a spare bedroom and experience of working with or looking after children. This could be informal, such as regularly caring for young family members.
Many people don’t think of Foster Care as a career option but full training is provided, as well as an assigned Social Worker, 24/7 support and courses are always on offer to gain more knowledge. The rewards of fostering are enormous, you could change the life of a young person for the better.
