Why We Care film still

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 ne​ed 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.

Foster Care Fortnight receives around 900 pieces of media coverage each year, and The Fostering Network is delighted to receive the backing of celebrities and politicians from across the UK who lend their support to our campaign.

Foster Care Fortnight 2022 will take place from 9-22 May. More updates on this year's theme and how you can get involved will be added here over the coming weeks. 

To help make Foster Care Fortnight the best it can be, we welcome interest from foster carer and fostering service members as well as care experienced people from across the UK to join our steering group and help us with our planning.
