You can also come along to one of our information evenings or community events to find out more in person.
Foster Care Fortnight™ is The Fostering Network's annual campaign to raise the profile of fostering and to show how foster care transforms lives. It is also the UK's biggest foster carer recruitment campaign.
Foster Care Fortnight™ 2018 will take place from 14 to 27 May.
You can get involved in the campaign yourself by posting a photograph or short video on social media using the hashtags #ProudtoFoster and #ProudtoSupportFostering. You'll find out more by visiting thefosteringnetwork.org.uk or searching for #FCF18.
Our information evenings are informal and give you the chance to have a chat with social workers who are experienced in fostering.
We'll tell you a bit about becoming a foster carer and how we can support you. We'll also show some short video clips. Some of our foster carers will be there to share their experiences and answer any of your questions.
The information evenings run from 6pm to 7.30pm.
There is no need to book but please arrive promptly as the presentations start at 6pm.
