Cheshire East Council's fostering service makes vital appeal
Cheshire East Council has launched an urgent appeal for more local people to consider fostering at the start of a national fortnight celebrating the work of foster carers across the borough today.
Organised by leading fostering charity, The Fostering Network, Foster Care Fortnight runs from 9 to 22 May and is the UK's largest foster care awareness raising campaign.
The theme this year is 'fostering communities' and the campaign will shine a light on the many ways people across the fostering community work together and support each other.
Throughout the fortnight, the council will be running a series of events, sharing content on social media channels and generating as much interest as possible about the transformative power of foster care. The aim is to increase the number of foster carers who provide loving homes for cared for children and young people.
With more than 500 children and young people in the care of the local authority, the council is once again reaching out to residents to ask if they can become Cheshire East Council foster carers.
