In addition, the awards are supported by Haven and Partridges.

Kevin Williams, chief executive of The Fostering Network, said: 'We are excited to welcome both new and established sponsors to this year’s Fostering Excellence Awards, the UK’s only national fostering awards.

‘We would like to thank them for their support, which enables us to shine a spotlight on some of the exceptional foster carers, young people and social workers in the fostering community. Their support also gives us the opportunity to raise awareness of the transformational power of fostering among wider UK society.'

​The Fostering Excellence Awards 2019 will take place in London on 23 October.
