Advocacy and media - Foster Care Week 22

 

FCWlogohash

FCAV sees Foster Care Week as a time to thank and celebrate our amazing foster carers, but also as a time to raise critical foster care advocacy. Foster care is reaching a crisis point with a dwindling pool of carers and a growing list of the reasons why carers are exiting the system. Some of the key factors causing carer dissatisfaction have been brought to light through media and advocacy this foster care week 2022.
