Foster Care Fortnight 2019

Foster Care Fortnight™ is the UK’s biggest foster care awareness raising campaign, delivered by leading fostering charity, The Fostering Network. Established for almost 20 years, the campaign showcases the commitment, passion and dedication of foster carers. It also supports fostering services to highlight the need for more foster carers. Thousands of new foster families are needed every year to care for children, with the greatest need being for foster carers for older children, sibling groups, disabled children and unaccompanied asylum seeking children.

Foster Care Fortnight 2019 – #changeafuture

We believe that foster care changes futures – the futures of fostered children and young people and the futures of the foster families who care for them.

Have you ever had a moment in your life which you can look back on and see that your future changed at that time? Perhaps it was a teacher telling you that you were really good at something that is now your career? Or a relationship which led you to move? Or a trip overseas which gave you a different outlook on life? What was your moment? Fostering has the potential to be lifechanging for fostered children and young people – it can #changeafuture.

This Foster Care Fortnight we want you to know that fostering is about changing futures. And, if you think you have the relevant skills and experience, we’re calling on you to consider becoming foster carers so that you can also #changeafuture.

If you would like to find out more about becoming a Foster Carer please contact our fostering team on 01454 866423, email fostering@southglos.gov.uk or join us at our next Fostering Information Evening at Bailey’s Court Activity Centre, Bradley Stoke on Thursday 30thMay from 7pm to 9pm.
