It's Foster Care Fortnight 13 - 24 May

Keely, who grew up in the care of a Buckinghamshire County Council foster carer reveals how fostering has the power to change futures:

“I have got the best foster parents in the world who have given me the best opportunity in life and are very supportive. Please help another child in need and give them a chance.”

Foster Care Fortnight (13 – 24 May 2019) is a national campaign run by the Fostering Network, aiming to celebrate the great work foster carers do to change our foster children’s futures, bust myths on who can foster, and help raise awareness of the ongoing need for new foster carers.

This Foster Care Fortnight we’re sharing how our carers and staff have changed a child’s future; you can watch some of their moving stories here.

This Foster Care Fortnight, you are invited to join us at a series of events we are hosting across the county  to help you find out more about fostering and the specialist training, generous allowances and excellent support we offer to all our foster carers.
