We were pleased to work with a national fostering agency to help raise awareness during Foster Care Fortnight.
The annual campaign which runs from 13-26 May takes the theme of #changeafuture, aiming to raise the profile of fostering and how it can be life-changing for children and young people.
As part of the campaign, Orange Grove Fostercare, ISP, Fosterplus and Clifford House Fostering, who provide fostering services across the UK, have been sharing a series of films through their social media channels, which tells the story of Olivia, a young girl in care.
The campaign follows Olivia’s journey and her growing relationships with her foster carer, Jackie. Olivia goes from being angry, anxious and lost, to starting to accept her surroundings, embracing the opportunities presented to her and succeeding at school and home.
ISP also held a PR stunt at Centre MK, placing bird boxes around the shopping area for shoppers to pick up and take home. The bird boxes were painted by foster children and included a hand written note explaining why foster carers are important to them.
