People who live in the Highlands are being asked “Could you #changeafuture?” as the local authority supports the national Foster Care Fortnight campaign which starts today.

Foster Care Fortnight is The Fostering Network's annual campaign to raise the profile of fostering. It is also the UK's biggest foster carer recruitment campaign.

Councillor Linda Munro, chairwoman of the council’s corporate parenting board, said: “Fostering is about changing futures – both the futures of children and young people and foster carers themselves.

“Think about the difference you could make in the life of a child or young person – or several children or young people – by becoming foster carers.

“We know from research that most people become foster carers because they want to make a positive impact on the lives of children, so we hope that #changeafuture will resonate with potential foster carers and encourage them to find out more.”
