asphaleia fostering

The asphaleia fostering team provide placements across London and the South East and work together to provide safe and secure homes for children and young people.

Fostering enables us to make a positive difference to any vulnerable child's life promoting their future growth and development in West Sussex, Hampshire, East Sussex, Brighton and Hove, Kent and London. We believe that the presence of a supportive, encouraging and approving foster family can greatly enhance a child's self-esteem and help them to grow into confident and well adjusted adults.

The agency has a dedicated team of foster carers who maintain high levels of care for vulnerable children and young people. We offer a competitive package of benefits, training and support networks to ensure our foster carers are looked after and never face challenging days on their own.

asphaleia fostering offers additional services to support successful foster placements for children and young people. These include flexible education projects, learning support, independent living skills and English for speakers of other languages.

We urgently need foster carers in the South East. Please click here to enquire.

Across the UK there is a shortage of 10,000 foster carers needed to meet the needs of thousands of children across the country - that equates to 6000 more children in care on any one day than there were in 2007.

asphaleia fostering offers a range of placements. These include:

  • Emotionally challenging teenagers
  • Asylum and refugee children
  • Parent and child
  • Respite care

We are currently looking for foster carers to join our team with a desire to learn and develop their skills. In particular those who are willing to foster teenagers, mother and babies and children with special needs, to ensure we continue to offer quality specialist placements.

If you are looking for a new challenge, have a good sense of humour and commitment to learning, resilience, patience, and time and space to give to a child, we would love to hear from you. Please take the time to read more about our service and what we offer on our website and contact the team further for more information.
