Foster Care Fortnight 2022 Launched (9-22 May)

10th May 2022

HSC NI Foster Care is appealing for more foster carers as part of Foster Care FortnightTM ,  The Fostering Network’s annual celebration of foster care.

This year’s theme is #FosteringCommunities to acknowledge the strength and resilience of fostering communities and all they do to ensure children and young people are supported and cared for.

This fortnight, we are celebrating the incredible work of our foster carers who are transforming the lives of children and young people in care by providing them with loving, stable and nurturing homes where they can develop and reach their potential.

There are children and young people in every community who need foster care. Some may need fostered for a few nights, while others need longer term care. With a shortage of foster carers children have to move from their own community, travel to school, miss out on playing with their friends after school or enjoying their hobbies.

We need a wide range of foster carers to reflect the diversity of children and young people who need safe homes. Our HSC NI Foster Care community is made up of a rich mix of people including couples, single carers, parent and adult child who foster together, carers from ethnic minorities and carers from the LGBTQ+ community.

This #FCF22 why not consider becoming part of our foster carer community?

We will train you, provide financial allowances and support you every step of the way through the process.

Give a child a brighter future
