Foster Care Fortnight takes place between 1-14 June 2015. The annual awareness raising campaign aims to encourage a diverse range of people with the right skills and qualities to foster to come forward to meet the needs of children in care.
With a shortage of 10,000 foster carers across the UK, more foster carers are needed to provide children with safe and caring homes while they are unable to live with their own families.
In 2014 the Fostering Network charity had their 40 year anniversary so you can imagine the celebrations that took place!
The focus of events during the fortnight are to encourage more people to foster and think about what it takes to give a child a loving home. The theme for 2015 hasn't been announced yet - so, keep checking back on the official website!
