Since the launch of the Fosterline Foundation at the FosterTalk 10th Anniversary awards event last year the Minister Edward Timpson challenged the Fosterline Foundation to carry out fundraising activities on behalf of Fosterline. Central to the Foundation’s ambition is the long-term sustainability of the Fosterline Freephone number and website, so that it will continue to provide high quality advice, support and information to the fostering population.
The Foundation has been involved in many activities including a cake decoration competition judged by Lorraine Pascale, donations from Manchester United and Worcester County Cricket Club  that have complemented our Ebay auctions.

The current total is in excess of:-


but we need to continue to raise more funding to help sustain this vital service for both prospective and current foster carers in England. Over 40,500 people have been provided with information on the role of fostering and from the results of an independent evaluation of the service by Birmingham City University over 80%  agreed that without Fosterline there would be a lack of appropriate independent support for foster carers in England.

Your Christmas shopping could help raise funds to ensure some of the most vulnerable children within our society have the best possible foster care, promoting positive outcomes for the children and young people
