The Member Conferences are a series of regional and country conferences providing foster carers and fostering services with the opportunity to explore local, regional and national issues in fostering.

Over the next 18 months, we will be delivering a brand new series of conferences across the UK for our members.

The conferences will enable fostering service staff and foster carers to explore local, regional and national issues in fostering. You will hear news and practice developments from your area and The Fostering Network, as well as about the latest innovation in fostering. You will also have the opportunity to meet others from your fostering community.

Last year’s conference series was a huge success with 12 events in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

‘The conferences are a great opportunity to hear about current research and practice impacting children in foster care and to network with fostering colleagues.’
