Foster Swansea

Are you ready to make a difference?

We're supporting Foster Care Fortnight 2018 - the UK's biggest annual foster care awareness raising campaign, delivered by fostering charity, The Fostering Network.

The annual campaign runs 14-27 May, and once again, the theme for this year is 'Foster care transforms lives', using the hashtag #proudtofoster and #proudtosupportfostering.

Every year, Swansea Council shows its support by raising the profile of Foster Swansea and the need for more foster carers. We also want as many people as possible to know how fostering can transform lives - not just for the children and young people, but also for the foster families too.

Our campaign will showcase the commitment, passion and dedication of our foster carers, dispel some of the myths that exist in fostering, and also highlight the need for more foster carers - particularly for teenagers, those with complex needs, sibling groups and parent and child.

We all foster or support fostering. You could too!
