Foster Care Fortnight™ 9-22 May

Diagrama supporting annual campaign to raise the profile of fostering and show how foster care transforms lives

There are thousands of children looking for a safe and secure homes and Diagrama hopes that the two-week campaign this May will increase the number of people who come forward to be considered for this vital role within communities. Each child’s circumstances and needs are different, but every child has the right to have their needs met, and the Diagrama team would love to talk to you about the difference you can make to a child’s life.

Margaret Gardiner, Fostering and Adoption Team Manager, Diagrama, said, “Foster Care Fortnight™ is the UK’s biggest campaign to raise awareness of foster care. This year the campaign is shining a light on the many ways people across the fostering community support each other. Support is crucial for foster carers and the importance of a strong network combining the Diagrama foster team, our foster carers’ family and friends and the local community is essential. Thousands of new foster families are needed every year to care for children, with the greatest need being for foster carers for older children, sibling groups, disabled children, and unaccompanied asylum-seeking children and we would love to hear from anyone who is considering this rewarding career.”

You can become a foster carer with the charity Diagrama no matter your age, gender, relationship status or sexual orientation.

Margaret continued, “We really appreciate everything our foster carers do for children in care and can’t thank them enough. By supporting each other and working together as a team, our fostering community makes sure that our children can grow up, in a nurturing, loving and safe environment, to reach their full potential.”
