Registered Charity No
The Fostering Network is the UK’s leading fostering charity. We bring together everyone involved in fostering to improve life for the tens of thousands of children living with foster families today.
We support foster carers to transform children’s lives and we work with fostering services and the wider sector to develop and share best practice. By listening to and working with our members we create vital change. We influence fostering policy and practice at every level and campaign to ensure that foster care is the very best it can be.
Every 20 minutes another child comes into care needing a foster family. Children come into care for many reasons, but many have suffered abuse or neglect. For many, fostering is often their first positive experience of family life.
It is more vital than ever that fostering is properly supported, recognised and valued. All our work is focussed on making sure foster care is the very best it can be. That means improving stability for children, making sure they can maintain important relationships and have every opportunity to fulfil their potential.
By playing the lottery, you are helping us make all the difference for fostered children and foster families, now and into the future.
