Read about the Fostering Excellence Awards in 2018 and see some photos from the day.
Since the first awards took place in 2014, the Fostering Excellence Awards have continued to grow year on year and this year was the biggest and best yet!
The ceremony was well attended by guests from inside and outside of the fostering sector, and together we celebrated the outstanding achievements and exceptional contributions of some amazing young people, foster carers, social workers and fostering supporters.
You can watch films about our President’s award winner, Afia, and one of our Outstanding Contribution by Sons and Daughters winners, Nia, below.
Speaking about the Awards, The Fostering Network's chief executive, Kevin Williams, said:
'The Fostering Excellence Awards are my favourite event of the calendar year offering a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the difference that fostering makes to children and young people, the families that look after them and the wider fostering community. The achievements of our winners are incredible - we wish them all congratulations.'
As well as recognising all of the award winners and their achievements, the Fostering Excellence Awards also help to raise awareness about all those in the fostering community who work tremendously hard to make a difference to children’s and young people’s lives every day.
