Foster Care Fortnight© 2022 – Time to celebrate the fostering community!

Foster Care Fortnight© 2022 is the UK’s biggest foster care awareness raising campaign. It is delivered by leading fostering charity, The Fostering Network. This year’s theme is #FosteringCommunities. The theme wants to celebrate the strength and resilience of fostering communities and all they do to ensure children are cared for and supported to thrive. 

It hopes to shine a light on the many ways people in the fostering community have supported each other, during the Covid-19 pandemic. Highlighting the need for more dedicated foster carers.

Whether you’re invested in the fostering process already, just starting out on your journey or you’re curious about fostering. Foster Care Fortnight© 2022 is just the ticket for you to explore this community more and make the most of it.
