Powys County Council (PCC) is supporting a nationwide campaign that encourages people to consider fostering.

Foster Care Fortnight runs from Monday, May 13 to Sunday, May 26 to raise the profile of fostering and the transformational power of foster care - the power to #changeafuture.

PCC’s Fostering Service is passionate about the difference that foster care makes to the lives of fostered children and young people. If you think you have the relevant skills and experience, its calling on you to consider becoming foster carers so that you can also #changeafuture.
