Foster Care Fortnight
Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council are supporting this year’s Foster Care Fortnight campaign (10th – 23rd May) and urging people to consider fostering as a career.
They particularly need carers who can support children and young people between 10 -15 years old, sibling groups of brothers & sisters and short breaks Link foster carers.
Foster Care Fortnight is the UK’s largest foster care awareness-raising campaign and aims to show the positive impact foster care has made on young people’s lives. Foster carers accomplish incredible things every day, and despite the practical and emotional challenges from coronavirus, foster carers continue to provide day-to-day support, love and stability to children and young people who can’t live with their birth families.
Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council want to hear from anyone who is over 21, has a spare bedroom and the love and dedication to help our young people. Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council offer round the clock out of hours’ support should you need it, a dedicated supervising social worker who will provide regular supervision and support and generous pay and benefits.
