Dreams, Britain’s leading bed specialist, worked with us over a long-term strategic partnership to transform fostered children’s lives across the UK. Staff throughout the company fundraised for two and a half years to help us raise awareness of foster care and the need for more people to come forward to foster. Dreams also supported us with company donations and helped us make the Fostering Excellence Awards such a success each year. During the partnership, they raised over £200,000 and had a huge impact for foster families and the children they care for.

Fostering Friendly employers
The Fostering Network’s Fostering Friendly employers’ scheme helps employers to support, recognise and celebrate the important role their employees who foster play in society. We do this by working with employers directly, and also by supporting foster carers and fostering services who are promoting fostering friendly employment locally.
If you are an employer that is interested in finding out more about how you can support foster care in general and your own staff that foster then please visit our Fostering Friendly page and learn how you can become involved.
