What is Foster Care Fortnight 2022?
Whether you’re invested in the fostering process already, just starting out on your journey or you’re curious about fostering, Foster Care Fortnight 2022 is just the ticket for you to explore this community more and make the most of it.
Foster Care Fortnight 2022 is, as you’d imagine, a fortnight dedicated to raising awareness of fostering across the UK. Taking place annually, each campaign is delivered by leading fostering charity The Fostering Network. Created back in 1997, the awareness campaign aims to shed light on the need for more foster carers. From disabled children to siblings, unaccompanied asylum seeking children and older children, the campaign covers every area of fostering.
Why is Foster Care Fortnight 2022 so important?
This year, more than ever, we need Foster Care Fortnight. From a global pandemic to wars across the world, children are being separated from their birth families and put in a position of needing foster families more than ever. Foster Care Fortnight 2022 will shine a light on the incredible work done in recent years by foster families around the UK and show you how you can make a huge impact in the lives of any children you may choose to foster.
When is Foster Care Fortnight 2022?
Foster Care Fortnight will take place between 9th-22nd May with a theme of fostering communities. The theme will help put a focus on the resources we’ve all used over the past two years to help build up our incredible support network of foster carers and the community we’ve created to help aid the fostering experience as a whole.
