Foster Care Fortnight is taking place between 15 and 28 May 2023. Brent Council will be joining the campaign by running a focused information event and by sharing the stories of various local foster families.
The biggest awareness raising campaign in the fostering sector, Foster Care Fortnight is led by The Fostering Network. The council is supporting the fortnight to raise awareness about children in care and to celebrate the diversity of the amazing local foster families that look after them.
Local foster carers are incredibly different in terms of cultural background, ethnicity, religion, interests and life experiences and skills. However, they are all highly motivated to help local children thrive. Brent values its community of carers because of how well they can meet the needs of the children and young people they look after. Moreover, their diversity makes it easy for the council to find suitable homes for the vulnerable minors coming into care.
