Princess Kate is keeping up her commitment to supporting foster kids.

On Wednesday Kensington Palace announced that Kate, 33, will step out to meet carers and children and honor three young people who are being recognized by a leading charity, The Fostering Network, at the Fostering Excellence Awards in London on November 17.

The royal mom previously teamed with the group in January, when she met foster parents and heard from youngsters who have experienced the life-changing impact of the care.

Kate’s support for the fostering world is all part of her long-term immersion in the causes that aim to help vulnerable young people. In recent months she has delved further into mental health and addiction issues along with other social issues like bullying.

Kevin Williams, chief executive of The Fostering Network, said he was “delighted” to have Kate at the awards. “The spotlight that will be placed on these young people, who have worked so hard with the support of their foster [caregivers] to change their future, is thoroughly deserved.

There are more than 64,000 children living with around 52,500 foster families across the U.K. Such children have often experienced neglect and abuse, or have witnessed domestic violence or addiction and caregivers can provide them with what is often their first positive experience of family life.
