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 in the gallery below and 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.
Here's what previous Foster Walk participants thought about it:
‘I would encourage anyone to take part in the London Foster Walk. We had a great day (even as a team of adults!) and the kids clearly enjoyed themselves. I was proud to be part of the big, orange team!’ – Corporate Partner
‘What a joy it was to participate in Foster Walk London on Saturday.
What struck me most, was the sense of togetherness. There was a real sense of being part of something special’ – Fostering service
Foster Walk 2019 has happened!
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 sixth year of Foster Walks...
Foster Walk London
This year's event took place on Saturday 15th June and it was a fantastic event - thank you so much to everyone who attended! We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon walking through the City of London and you can see photos of the day on social media and in a gallery below.
We'll be in touch with further information about how you can take part in 2020 early next year!

Registrations are open now and you can sign up here: Kiltwalks 2019
This year, you can enter a Foster Walk Team in the famous Kiltwalks! So sign up to be part of a team on a walk of your choice throughout the spring and summer: Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh.
You can take on a Mighty Stride, a Big Stroll or a Wee Wander and there's something to suit the whole family and best of all....ANYTHING you fundraise gets a 40 per cent boost this year from Kiltwalk itself. Orange kilts and fancy dress are encouraged!
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.
