Foster Care Fortnight takes place between 12-25 May 2014. 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.
'Get in the frame' was the theme for Foster Care Fortnight 2013. The focus of the event was to encourage more people to foster and think about what it takes to give a child a loving home. The theme for 2014 hasn't been announced yet - so, keep checking back on the official website!
