Evolve Therapeutic Fostering is a family owned fostering agency in Brighton and Hove that is currently recruiting foster carers locally. There is an urgent need for carers. If you have a spare room and the time for fostering, we would love to hear from you and to cover your questions about foster care.

We have a local team and social workers in Brighton and Hove that support foster carers based here. At 31 March 2022, there were 269 children in care with Brighton and Hove Local authority (Source: DFE) and we need your help to make a difference for these young persons together from providing a safe home through fostering. It is very rewarding to support a child or young person with their education, learning, for them to feel safe, make friends and enjoy their achievements. You can make this happen!

As an independent therapeutic fostering agency, Evolve Therapeutic Fostering links up and works in partnership with your Local Authority to meet their needs and outcomes. We have a family ethos and value all our foster carers. The current shortage of foster carers includes specific needs including complex, enhanced and parent and child placements. There is also fostering demand for challenging teenagers and large sibling groups.

If you are an existing foster carer, we can also help you transfer fostering agencies and fast track your assessment. We have dedicated social workers to take your application forward and to visit you.
