Foster Care Fortnight™ is The Fostering Network's annual campaign to raise the profile of fostering and to show how foster care can transform lives. Foster Care Fortnight 2018 is taking place from 14 to 27 May.
The campaign showcases the commitment, passion and dedication of foster carers. It also supports fostering services to highlight the need for more foster carers:
Over 7,000 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 and disabled children.
There a range of ways you can get involved with Foster Care Fortnight 2018. Find out more here
This Fortnight is also a great time to challenge the myths and misconceptions about fostering, and show that people from all sectors of society can be, and are, foster carers – and anyone can show their support for fostering #ProudToFoster
