From 11-24 May it’s Foster Care Fortnight organised by The Fostering Network. This year’s central theme is‘This Is Fostering’ to help provide an authentic picture of people involved in fostering.

In the latest blog from Ofsted: developments in children’s social care, Yvette Stanley, National Director for Regulation and Social Care, talks about the invaluable work of foster carers.

Yvette says: ‘Times like these can bring out the best in us. Many unsung heroes have come to the fore in recent weeks. As we arrive at Foster Care Fortnight, I want to focus on foster carers. Up and down the country, foster carers are helping to keep the most vulnerable children safe and settled during these truly exceptional times.’
