Foster Care Fortnight

More success stories

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.

Thousands of new foster families are needed every year to care for children, with the greatest need being for foster carers for older children, sibling groups, disabled children and unaccompanied asylum seeking children.

This year Foster Care Fortnight runs from 8-21 May, and we want as many people as possible to know about the transformational power of foster care, as well as the need for more foster carers.
