Oscar nominated star supports Foster Care Fortnight
Oscar nominee Samantha Morton is the latest big name to throw her support behind the Fostering Network’s Foster Care Fortnight campaign.
The film star, who spent time in the care system as a youngster, feels passionately that no child should be without a safe and secure environment in which to grow and develop.
"As a foster child myself I would not be where I am today without the people that were kind enough to help and care for me when others were unable. Please please consider fostering a child."
Samantha joins singer Gareth Gates, the son of foster carers, in supporting this year’s campaign.
Foster Care Fortnight is the Fostering Network’s annual campaign to raise awareness of the need for more foster carers. This year it takes place from 14 to 27 May.
