Foster Care Fortnight

Foster Care Fortnight 9 to 22 May 2022

There are many foster carers in our area, most going unnoticed, but foster carers change lives. I’ve been asked to promote Foster Carer Week by providing information.:

Now more than ever, this year’s Foster Care Fortnight theme of ‘Fostering Community’ could not seem more fitting. The fortnight starts May 9th and runs through until May 22nd and hosts a whole range of ongoing gatherings, activities and opportunities to meet up to discuss fostering in the County. Caring for children is a tremendously difficult and important task and we aim to guide those that foster for us with supervision, training and participation.

WCF fostering are always looking to expand the county’s family of foster carers. We are especially interested in those open to caring for teenagers and siblings and we encourage those considering fostering to find out more about the journey to foster, speak with local fostering families, staff and find out more about what life could be like as a foster carer and the rewarding feeling you get when you make the difference to a child’s life.

 Making the decision to foster a child is one of the biggest, but one of the most rewarding decisions you can make. We want to encourage those considering fostering to find out more about the journey to foster, speak with local fostering families, staff and find out more about what life could be like as a foster carer if they were to join Worcestershire’s biggest fostering family.

If you foster or are thinking about fostering, why not come along and meet other fostering families at our open morning on Saturday 21 May at County Hall, WR5 2NP. Register your interest at:
