Fostering in Brighton

 With a high quality of life, low crime rate, and the diverse and varied employment market filled with opportunities, Brighton is a vibrant place to both raise and inspire young people. Spending much of the year packed with students due to the accommodation for both the Universities of Brighton and Sussex within the main Brighton town, the population of teenagers and young people is high, creating an exciting way of life for those just starting out.

And that’s not all. For families, Brighton’s proximity to the coastline and various areas of natural beauty is key, presenting days out right on your doorstep. And if beach days aren’t your thing, Brighton is a unique location filled with independent boutiques and businesses and is just a short train ride of 50 mile drive from the centre of London – combining its excellent location with the affordability of outer city life.

 For those looking to raise a family in Brighton, the area boasts a high level sense of community which is unmatched by anywhere else – and it’s this which makes Brighton such a popular place among foster carers as well as birth parents. When you become a foster carer in Brighton, not only do you open your home to a young person who craves love and support – you also become part of the Blue Sky Fostering network, filled with likeminded surrogate parents who share much more than just their compassion for children in care.

As a foster carer, your role as surrogate parent is bolstered by the need to be a teacher, friend, mentor, listener, confidante, and so much more. For so many children in foster care, life prior to their placement has been filled with fear and often trauma – and it’s the job of our foster carers to cut through these negative experiences and inspire the child or teenager to look towards a future of hope.

In Brighton alone, there are 69 primary schools and 28 secondary schools – meaning that there is an educational facility and support system for all ages and abilities. Beyond formal education, Brighton is rife with opportunities, including its link to the arts and vibrant culture, its immersive experiences, and its tolerant community spirit.

Here at Blue Sky Fostering, we believe that anyone and everyone can be a foster carer or surrogate parent – and that as long as you have the space and the patience to care for and support a young person with a challenging past, this journey was made for you.
