Highland Council is supporting Foster Care Fortnight™ 2022

Foster Care Fortnight
Highland Council is appealing for more people to become foster carers

This week marks the beginning of Foster Care Fortnight™ and Highland Council is appealing for more people to come forward and consider fostering.

Foster care provides vital care to children and young people and is at the heart of our communities, enabling children to stay with foster families, local to everything they are familiar with already.

The Council needs foster carers who can look after infants, younger children, teenagers and brothers and sisters to keep them together, in an emergency and on a temporary basis or provide respite for children in their local community, who have a disability.

The local authority also needs permanent carers for older children so they can remain with these carers for the remainder of their childhood. Highland's foster carers also support each other and share skills and expertise.  

This Foster Care Fortnight (taking place from Monday 9 to Sunday 22 May 2022), Highland Council wants to celebrate the strength and resilience of its fostering communities, and all they do to ensure children are cared for and supported to thrive.

Foster Care Fortnight™ is The Fostering Network's annual campaign to raise the profile of fostering. It is also the UK's biggest foster carer recruitment campaign.
