Each year, Foster Care Fortnight (#FCF17) held in May strives to raise awareness for the ever increasing need for foster carers across the UK. It is estimated by the Fostering Network that 9,070 new foster carers are needed to meet the needs of children in care.
The theme of this year’s campaign is ‘foster care transforms lives‘. At Fostering People, we know through years of experience that great, stable, loving homes can make a real difference for children who haven’t had the best start in life.
All any child wishes for is to feel safe in their own home and to know that someone cares. If you could make this wish come true, #FCF17 is a great time to find out more about fostering.
We are holding information events and coffee mornings across May in different location across the country. If you come along to one of our events you’ll have the opportunity to ask us questions, meet current foster carers and find out if fostering could be right for you or your family.
If you can’t make one of our events, we’d be happy to talk to you directly. Just give us a call on 0800 077 8159 or get in touch online.
