Foster Care Fortnight™ is The Fostering Network’s annual campaign to raise the profile of fostering and to show how foster care transforms lives. We’ve teamed up with Bridgend Foster Care to celebrate!
In Wales, hundreds of new foster families are needed every year to care for children, with the greatest need being for teenagers, sibling groups and children with complex needs.
This year Foster Care Fortnight runs from Monday 13th to Sunday 26th May.
We want as many people as possible to know about the transformational power of foster care, as well as the need for more foster carers.
Bridgend Foster Care is the local authority’s fostering service, and aims to provide high quality placements for children and young people who, through no fault of their own, can no longer stay with their birth families.
Placements are provided via in-house foster carers who play a vital role in creating a stable and loving family environment so children and young people can reach their full potential with confidence.
