Foster Walk is back – and bigger than ever! Our annual sponsored walk is a chance for everyone to get involved in raising awareness and funds for foster care in the UK.
This year we are celebrating the strength and resilience of our fostering communities by walking as one. Join us, together with your friends, family, neighbours or colleagues and help us make Foster Walk 2022 the best one yet!
Join Foster Walk 2022 and walk alongside hundreds of people across the UK during Foster Care Fortnight™, 9-22May.
Every 20 minutes another child in the UK becomes in need of a foster family. By walking with us, you’ll help raise support and funds for our vital fostering community and help make fostering the best it can be.
Together we aim to walk over 5,000,000 steps, in recognition of the 70,000 children in UK foster care who need our support. Will you join us?
Foster Walk is a great way to get involved in Foster Care Fortnight – no matter where you are in the UK or how much you know about fostering.
Simply, sign up as a household or team, set your own distance challenge (or use those in our challenge packs) and start counting those steps!
You can raise money over Foster Walk by:
- organising a team challenge with your family, friends, neighbours or colleagues
- setting yourself a step target and asking others to donate
- donating to somebody you know who is taking part.

A team from Derby City Council combined their walk with an awareness raising event in a local park, even painting a huge recruitment message on the sports field.
