Every year, Foster Care Fortnight brings some extra opportunities to promote fostering. This year was one of our busiest ever, we 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! We’ve sent the link round so you can watch – it was shown on both Yorkshire and NE and Cumbria editions – and a staggering 8000 also folk read about it on the FNY Facebook page alone, with many of those watching the dvd, too, which is great news.
This is the picture used in our Foster Care Fortnight press releases – featuring Cllr Janet Sanderson with the RAS team and Ben Imeson, who featured in the 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.
