Join us for Foster Care Fortnight

This week marks the return of Foster Care Fortnight, The Fostering Network's annual campaign aimed at raising awareness about fostering. This year's theme is Fostering Moments.

Throughout the fortnight, we will be encouraging people within the fostering community to share the moments that have been significant to them. For foster parents this might be when they were approved or the moment a young person in their care hugged them for the first time. We want to emphasise that every moment holds importance in fostering.

Every year, there is a growing need for more foster families across the UK to provide a safe and loving home to vulnerable young people. With a national shortage of foster parents, we are urging more people to consider whether they can open their hearts and homes to welcome a child in need.
