Proud to be Fostering in Brighton with Pride
At Orange Grove, we are committed to ensuring all the children in our care feel loved, respected and at home with their foster parents. In fact, we’re committed to making everybody feel this way in our Brighton & Hove fostering family.
Brighton is known as the ‘gay capital of the UK’, and our ethos has always been to celebrate inclusivity and LGBTQIA+ foster care. Within our Brighton fostering agency, we have amazing foster parents from all walks of life - including those who are fostering as a same-sex couple - and they’re all making a huge difference in children’s lives. We also appreciate the support LGBTQIA+ foster parents can give to young people in care who are confused about their own sexuality or gender identity.
It doesn’t matter who you are. As long as you’re passionate about helping children grow, develop and reach their full potential, you could start fostering in Brighton & Hove with Orange Grove.
Join our team of passionate foster parents, so that together, we can build brighter futures for even more children in care.

We have offices all over the UK, including our Brighton fostering agency, and around 400 children in our care. We’re committed to helping them all grow, heal and be hopeful for the life ahead of them.
