We have been part of our thriving local community for over 260 years, and through our staff, clients and partners value the importance and passion for supporting people and initiatives that make our community network what it is.
Throughout the year, we host a calendar of events to help raise awareness and funds for charities and good causes, and to support the well-being of our colleagues and community partners.
Our charity partner
We are delighted to be partnering with Finnbar’s Force as our official charity for 2024.
The charity’s focus is on fundraising, awareness, brain tumour research projects and family support. Throughout 2024, we will be focusing its own internal fundraising efforts on supporting the charity with their objectives, as well as providing volunteers for their events around Norfolk.
Since 2019 we have joined our partners Norwich City Football Club in highlighting the great work of local individuals and organisations in our community.
Every month during the football season, a ‘Community Hero’ is chosen for a selected matchday – providing an opportunity to showcase that person(s) or initiatives selfless work or important community campaign.
Previous Community Heroes have included young carers, veterans, equality campaigners, charity fundraisers and their beneficiaries.
Carer Friendly Tick Award
Back in May 2020, Fosters were delighted to become the first Norfolk company to receive the ‘Carer Friendly Tick Award – Employer’ in recognition of our policies and initiatives to help support colleagues who are family carers.
The award was given by Caring Together, a network partner of Carers Trust, who provide services and support for carers and their families across the eastern counties, including Norfolk.
We have been delighted to work with them to raise awareness of family carers and the support available to them.
