Welcome to Foster Care Fortnight!



We’re here everyday from 11-24 May, helping you to #PictureThis… a life as a foster family in Reading.

  • We’ve got brand new videos straight from the mouths of our foster carers, telling you what it’s like.
  • We’ve got an exciting new podcast series to share with you.
  • We’ve got stories! Not just from our foster carers, but our care leavers, siblings, young people and support workers.

We want you to see the whole picture. Now could be the time that you’re thinking of a new direction in life and maybe fostering is it. If you think you could make a difference to the life of a child in Reading, stay tuned over the next two weeks to learn more.

For now, have a look at our newly launched website to find out… what actually is fostering?

This is fostering.
