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 is here!

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.
