Every year, Foster Care Fortnight brings some extra opportunities to promote fostering. For the Fostering North Yorkshire team, this year was one of our busiest ever, they provided fostering features to two online tv stations, our press releases were widely covered, and then Look North approached us to work on a Foster Care Fortnight feature, too!

It was shown on both Yorkshire and NE and Cumbria editions of Look North – and a staggering 8000 folk also read about it on the FNY Facebook page alone, with many of those watching the dvd, too, which is great news.
The picture below shows some of our Fostering North Yorkshire team and features Cllr Janet Sanderson with the RAS team and Ben Imeson, who featured in the news article.
We also ran a market stall on Northallerton market and had fostering displays and sessions in Harrogate and Northallerton libraries, as well as our usual display in central Harrogate.
