I am backing the Foster Care Fortnight

The Foster Care Fortnight, the annual awareness campaign run by the largest UK fostering charity the Fostering Network, is aiming to support fostering services across the UK in recruiting 9,000 new foster families to provide homes the rising number of children coming into care. 

This year the campaign runs from 13 to 26 May. encourage constituents across the region to consider becoming foster carers to some of the area’s most vulnerable children.

Robert Tapsfield, chief executive of the Fostering Network, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Graham has put himself in the frame for Foster Care Fortnight. It shows that they recognise the need to make sure that the children and young people of Hyndburn who most need support, love and care have it.”
