Becoming a foster carer with Sussex Fostering (a social workers view)

“Over the first two months into my role as a Supervising Social Worker with Sussex Fostering Children’s Services I have met an amazing number of carers and Looked After Children. The foster carers are some of the most dedicated people I have ever met and put their heart and soul into a job they clearly love, the result of this is really stable and happy Looked After Children, the majority of whom refer to their carers as their parents. There is a great working in partnership approach amongst professionals and carers. I cannot emphasise enough how lovely the carers and their homes are. “
