This year's theme for Foster Care FortnightTM is #FosteringCommunities.
Foster care is at the heart of our communities, enabling children to stay with foster families, local to everything they are familiar with already. Foster care provides vital care to children and young people in all our communities. Foster carers also support each other and share skills and expertise.
This Foster Care Fortnight, we want to celebrate the strength and resilience of fostering communities, and all they do to ensure children are cared for and supported to thrive.
We have developed a range of resources to support you to promote Foster Care Fortnight and raise the profile of fostering.
Download the resources below and use them to tell everyone about your fostering community.
Please note: Foster Care FortnightTM is trademarked, so please make sure you use the correct name (not, for example, Fostering Fortnight). Please remember to tag The Fostering Network in when talking about Foster Care Fortnight on social media and use the hashtags #FosteringCommunities and #FCF22.
