Trustees are custodians of an organisation and govern its strategic direction. Our elected trustees are passionate about making a difference and improving foster care for children and young people in the UK, and they bring skills and experience which enable them to govern a successful charity and democratic membership organisation like The Fostering Network. With a turnover of more than £7 million per year, more than 100 staff and tens of thousands of members, the organisation needs business brains and strategic thinkers on its board.
The Fostering Network
You are here
The Fostering Network is led by a senior leadership team and a board of trustees, with experience across social care, the third sector, business and finance.
A society where the importance of fostering is understood, recognised and supported.
To support those who foster, improve opportunities for fostered children and young people and provide expert guidance to all fostering services.
This book has been produced to mark the 40th anniversary of The Fostering Network – an organisation that was created ‘around a kitchen table’ in 1974 by a small group of foster carers who wanted to make a difference.
