      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.

      There a range of ways you can get involved with Foster Care Fortnight. Find out more here.

      Foster Care Fortnight receives around 900 pieces of media coverage each year, and The Fostering Network is delighted to receive the backing of celebrities and politicians from across the UK who lend their support to our campaign.

      Foster Care Fortnight 2019 will take place from 13 to 26 May.

      How you can spread the word

      One of the aims of Foster Care Fortnight is to raise the profile of fostering and the transformational power of foster care – the power to #changeafuture. We often find that existing foster carers are the best advert for fostering, so if you are a foster carer (or are part of a fostering family or fostering service) please help spread the word. Tell others your fostering story – about the futures you have changed and how fostering has changed your future. Encourage your friends, family and colleagues to find out more by visiting our website.
