foster care fortnight 2023
This Foster Care Fortnight™ (15-28 May), Foster Wales and The Fostering Network will use the theme of ‘fostering communities’ to celebrate the positive difference that local authority foster carers have made to children’s lives.
Foster Wales is a national network not-for-profit fostering services, comprising 22 local authority teams in Wales.
They want to encourage more people to become foster carers with their local authority so children can remain in their local area, close to their friends and families and remain in their schools. This can help children and young people retain their sense of identity and self during an otherwise turbulent time.
