The Fostering Network

Our vision is a society in which the importance of fostering is recognised, understood and supported.

We support everyone involved in fostering so that foster children can enjoy fulfilling lives despite a difficult start in life

Did you know...

• We were founded in 1975 by a group of foster carers in Camden who were sat around a coffee table discussing the need for more support

• We are now the UK’s largest fostering charity

• Every 20 minutes a child comes in to care who is in need of a foster family somewhere in the UK and we will help to recruit a further 7,000 new foster carers that will be required in 2018 alone.

 What makes The Fostering Network different

• We inform and influence fostering policy and legislation.

• We campaign to make foster care the best it can be.

• We ensure that foster carers are properly recognised and valued.

Other ways to support

• If you run or work in a company, they can become a ‘Fostering Friendly Employer’
