Look into Fostering in Brighton today
Rainbow Fostering is an independent fostering agency. Our head office is in London, but we are now looking for foster carers in certain parts of the UK: this now includes Brighton.
Brighton has a very large LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) population, leading to its being known as the “gay capital of the UK. LGBT foster carers often have had direct experience of discrimination and marginalisation, meaning they often have developed the resilience and emotional strength the challenges of fostering present. Being a foster parent requires many qualities and resilience is an important one.
Fostering is one of the most rewarding things you can do
We work very hard to place children from local authority care in secure and loving foster homes. The emphasis is on providing stability. It is not surprising that children and young people in care can be challenging and uncooperative. The reason is that many of them have experienced a lot of disruption and rejection in their lives. We train our carers so they are resilient and able to meet the demands of such behaviour. Once a child/young person feels secure in their new foster home, their behaviour can quickly change for the better. Fostering can then be extremely rewarding as the positive difference a carer can make to a young life becomes clear.
