Foster Care Fortnight 2024

Foster Care Fortnight™ is The Fostering Network's annual campaign to raise the profile of fostering and show how foster care transforms lives. Foster Care Fortnight 2024 will take place from Monday 13 May - Sunday 26 May. 

A group of people in orange and purple t-shirts stand together holding an orange 'The Fostering Network' banner.

 

Foster Care Fortnight is the UK’s biggest foster care awareness raising campaign, delivered by leading fostering charity, The Fostering Network. Established in 1997, 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.

Running from Monday 13 May - Sunday 26 May 2024, our theme this year is #FosteringMoments.

During Foster Care Fortnight 2024 we want to celebrate the moments that define fostering journeys, big and small. The moments that built confidence, made young people feel safe and created memories.  

Throughout the fortnight we will encourage people across the fostering community to share the moments that have mattered to them. For foster carers, this might be the moment they were approved as a foster carer, or the moment a young person in their care hugged them for the first time. We want to show that every moment matters in fostering.  

Whether you’re a foster carer, a social worker, young person, Fostering Friendly employer or supporter of foster care, you are part of a community making a real difference to the lives of young people, and we want you all to get involved in the Foster Care Fortnight celebration.  

Foster Care Fortnight resources, including more information on how to get involved will be published at the end of March.
