Last year we spoke to 2360 people considering fostering during February – This year we want to speak to 3000 more!
This Fostering February we want to chat to as many people as possible who want to find out more information about fostering children or young people. Fostering February is our month long campaign dedicated to raising awareness of the increasing need for more foster families to meet the needs of vulnerable children and young people across the UK.
We want to go one step further this year and encourage even more people to discover the rewarding benefits of life as a foster carer. We’ll share information on financial support, types of foster care, the support and benefits plus much more!
Making a difference
To showcase the enormous influence that being a foster carer can have on the lives of children and young people needing a foster family, Jenny one of our foster carers in Northern Ireland and former foster child herself, gives us a glimpse of her family’s life and explains the positive difference foster care had on her, and how she is now doing the same for vulnerable children.
Jenny also shows us ‘A Day in the life of a Foster Carer’.
If you think you can make a difference to a child or young person’s life, be one of the 3000, get in touch with us today!
The Festival of Fostering
As part of our Fostering February campaign, on Saturday 20th February, we will be hosting a brand new event that is free for all to attend and where you can find out all about fostering and the difference you can make. The ‘Festival of Fostering’ is not one to be missed!
There’s a whole host of different interactive, informative and fun virtual events lined up, where you’ll have the opportunity to visit our different Festival Stages to find out about fostering, connect with others, meet the team and enjoy from your own home.
