As part of Fostering Fortnight™, The Fostering Network are holding various walks up and down the country. It will be family friendly with refreshments and children’s entertainment available.

There are various walks, click here to see a list, so as you can get details on your nearest one. The London walk is 5k (it’s not as bad as it sounds, honestly), and will be a walk through some of London’s iconic landmarks.

Registration is free, but if you get sponsorship you can help children and young people in care. Lets say, 300 people register to do the walk, with a sponsorship of just £50 each, it can provide £15,000 towards helping make foster care better for some of the 63,000 young people in care.

If there is no local walk, or you have other ideas for fundraising and want to get involved, you can also get in touch with The Fostering Network’s fundraising team by emailing them at or by calling them on 020 7620 8403.

We look forward to hearing your lovely stories about the exciting day out!
