FCA, the UK’s largest independent fostering agency, is taking 10 Fiat 500 cars to 10 locations in 10 days in celebration of the two-week national campaign Foster Care Fortnight which aims to raise awareness of fostering and recruit much-needed foster carers.

Staff and carers from FCA will stop at locations in cities from Glasgow to Birmingham to answer questions from the public about a rewarding career in fostering and to offer advice and guidance about taking the next step.

A big aim of this year’s Foster Care Fortnight is to dispel myths about the ‘typical’ foster carer, as FCA welcomes carers from a wide variety of backgrounds.

If you think you have the patience, commitment and enthusiasm to foster a child or young person, have a spare bedroom and a willingness to learn, contact FCA on 0800 434 6000 or visit www.thefca.co.uk. Alternatively like FCA on Facebook by visiting www.facebook.com/fcafostering
