Foster Care Fortnight 2016 will take place from Monday 16 to Sunday 29 May 2016. The theme will be Time to Foster, Time to Care.
What is Foster Care Fortnight?
Foster Care Fortnight™ is the UK’s biggest foster care awareness raising campaign, delivered by leading fostering charity, The Fostering Network. Established for almost 20 years, the campaign showcases the commitment, passion and dedication of foster carers. It also supports fostering services to highlight the need for more foster carers.
9,070 new foster families are needed in the next 12 months alone to care for a range of children, with the greatest need being for foster carers for older children, sibling groups, disabled children and unaccompanied asylum seeking children.
All of our regions will be holding events and activities for their carers and young people during the fortnight as well as recruitment stands, and coffee mornings. Contact your regional office to discuss fostering and how to become a foster carer.
