Fostering Fortnight is a two week period in May that aims to raise awareness and promote all the rewards fostering can bring.
We plan to carry on raising awareness in to June so that you'll be fully aware of all the fostering facts.
Fostering is one of the most varied, challenging and rewarding jobs you can do.
All kinds of people choose to foster for all kinds of reasons.
You can foster if you're single, married or living with a partner.
You can foster whatever your race, religion or sexuality.
Whether you live in your own home or you rent, you can foster.
Employed, Unemployed or retired... It doesnt matter, you can still foster
You can foster whether you have your own children or not
