Cover of A Kitchen Table Revolution

This book has been produced to mark the 40th anniversary of The Fostering Network – an organisation that was created ‘around a kitchen table’ in 1974 by a small group of foster carers who wanted to make a difference.

A brief history such as this will never adequately cover all of the projects and services that The Fostering Network has provided or the campaigns fought and won, nor pay enough tribute to the dedication and expertise of all the people involved over the past 40 years. This book can do no more than provide an overview of some of the most important themes and events. We nevertheless hope that this is a useful record of what has gone before and serves as a celebration of what has been achieved to date to improve the lives of children in foster care.
