Mon 14-Sun 27 May - Foster Care Fortnight


When: Between Monday 14th May and Sunday 27th May 2018
Where: Various locations around Bristol (see below)

Foster Care Fortnight will launch in Bristol on Monday 14 May with an information and advice event at Bishopston Library, the first leg on a ten stop tour of the city for the council’s Fostering team.
 
The Foster Care Fortnight Roadshow series of free drop in events will see team members involved in recruiting foster carers and a Bristol based foster carer, travelling across the city to answer the questions people have about becoming a foster carer and share the real life stories of those in care and caring.
 
The roadshow will coincide with the national Foster Care Fortnight, the UK’s biggest awareness raising campaign, delivered by leading fostering charity, The Fostering Network. Running for almost 20 years, the campaign showcases the commitment, passion and dedication of foster carers. Local authorities across the country will be holding events and raising awareness during the fortnight to encourage more people to come forward and consider fostering.
 
Between Monday 14 May and Sunday 27 May Bristol City Council will support the call for people to step forward to become carers for almost 700 children in care in Bristol. We  call on those  in the Bristol Networks Community  to help us find more foster carers in Bristol. Perhaps you are interested yourself, or know a friend or family member who would make a great foster carer. Or you could like our social media pages Twitter@BCCFostering and BristolFostering on Facebook and share our posts and events.
 
You help in our campaign this fortnight entitled #theirfutureourhands will make the world of difference to a child’s future. Bristol Fostering 0117 3534200 www.bristol.gov.uk/fostercarefortnight
