Finding homes for children in West Sussex

In 2021, there were 891 children under the care of West Sussex County Council, an increase of over 10% on the previous year. Around half of these children were entering care for the first time.

Currently, many of these children who cannot remain with their birth family are having to be placed long distances from their homes and local communities. There is an urgent need for more local foster carers to meet the needs of children and young people in the area.

Home for Good is delighted to be supporting West Sussex County Council in recruiting new foster carers. We want to see children and young people in stable and loving homes that are close to their schools, their friends and their family or community. We believe the local Church in West Sussex can make a transformational difference.



Home for Good is inviting local churches and individuals to financially support us to achieve this vision. Our goal of raising £15,000 per year for three years will enable the recruitment of a Local Coordinator specifically dedicated to working with churches across West Sussex.
