MORE families are needed to keep foster care brothers and sisters together.
West Sussex County Council is after people who can offer a stable and loving home to more than one child - to stop brothers and sisters from having to be split up.
Cllr Pete Bradbury, said: 'We do try where possible to keep siblings together; although in a few cases it is actually necessary to separate them.
'Sibling foster care is a similar set up to regular foster care, where the council pays a weekly allowance for the children's clothes, food and household bills.
'But sibling groups, particularly over the age of eight, generally stay with a foster family long term, which families who foster single children might not be used to.'
