The commitment, passion and dedication of foster carers are being celebrated during this year’s Foster Care Fortnight.
The special fortnight, which runs until Sunday (23 May), is a chance for a light to shine on the fantastic work of foster carers, professionals and campaigners in providing brighter futures for our local children.
But it’s also a chance for us to highlight the need for more foster carers.
Here in North Somerset we have an on-going need for more foster carers, particularly those who could care for children aged 11 and over, or brother and sister groups so the siblings can stay together.
The theme of this year’s Foster Care Fortnight is #WhyWeCare and our social media pages have carers and professionals from North Somerset talking about their experiences and motivation.
