Foster Care Fortnight 2022
- Blogs and News
Foster Care Fortnight (9th-22nd May) is an annual campaign to raise awareness of the transformational power of foster care and to celebrate the fostering community.
There's never been a better time to find out more about the difference you could make to a child's life.
We'd love for you to join us at one of our information evenings during Foster Care Fortnight!
- Wednesday 11th May, Ellergreen Community Centre, from 6:00pm - 7:30pm
- Thursday 19th May, Fire Fit Hub, from 6:00pm - 7:30pm
And if you can’t make one of the information events, there’s lots of drop-in events where you can simply turn up and speak to a foster carer and some of our team.
Or find out all about fostering from the comfort of your home, at an online drop-in with a foster carer.
'STAND BY ME' Children's Art Competition
During Foster Care Fortnight we want to champion children in foster care and our foster carers who are by their side.
Children in foster care are resourceful, remarkable, and resilient. The care and commitment of our foster carers gives children the stability and support they need to follow their hopes and dreams and reach their potential.
This sentiment inspired our 'Stand by me' art competition for children and young people in foster care. During Foster Care Fortnight, their amazing entries are going to be brought to life by local artist Ali Harwood, who will create a design on large canvasses to be displayed around the city.
