Fostering Fortnight 2018

IFCA Fostering Fortnight


IFCA’s annual campaign to raise awareness of fostering in Ireland is
taking place from 26th February – 9th March 2018 and we want everyone to get involved!
This year we will be organising FAMILY BAKE OFF’S around the country. This is your chance to get the whole family baking!  We want you to send us photos of your wonderful cakes, share your recipes, host a coffee morning and enter our local competitions.  We will also be looking for foster carers to get involved in sharing their fostering story.
We will have more information available shortly and we will be keeping you posted on how you can get involved.  Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more information!
