We're celebrating five years of Foster Walk
Whether you want to organise your own or sign up to one that we put on, there is a series of Foster Walks for you to get involved with. Foster Walks are The Fostering Network's flagship fundraising events celebrating foster care and raising money to help us continue our work transforming fostered children’s lives...and they are fun of course! You can see photos from last year's Foster Walk here.
Foster walks are a chance for fostering families, fostering services, friends and supporters to get together for a great day out. When you register for a walk we will send you a fundraising pack with all you need to get your fundraising off to a great start.
Foster Walk 2018 is here!
Whether you're here to sign up to an organised Foster Walk or to consider arranging your own, we are delighted to confirm the following details for our celebratory fifth year of Foster Walks...

Organise a Foster Walk
Organising a Foster Walk in your area is a wonderful way to get together with foster families and others involved in fostering in your local community, raise money to support the work of The Fostering Network and to celebrate foster care – all at the same time!
By organising a Foster Walk you’ll be enabling us to help the 64,000 children and young people living with foster carers on any one day achieve the very best they can.
