What is Foster Care Fortnight?
Foster Care Fortnight starts today. Foster Care Fortnight is a national campaign run every year by the Fostering Network. It aims to increase awareness around fostering and promote its benefits in order to recruit more foster carers.
This year the campaign slogan is #ProudToFoster and focuses on how varied a group foster carers are and so showing that people from any walk of life can foster. They have even produced a short film featuring one of our carers.
Here at Eastern Fostering Services, we have asked our carers to produce their own short film and a blog. You can see these on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/EasternFosteringServices
To celebrate Foster Care Fortnight we will be holding some events this May. The first is at Ipswich Market on Thursday 17th May so do come along and see us if you live in Suffolk. Our second is at Colchester Market on 18th May so if you are from Essex and interested in fostering, pop in!
