Foster Care Support

Caring for children who cannot live with their families

We support foster carers to create welcoming, loving and safe home environments for children and young people in care.

Fostering Young Lives

For a night or longer term, our foster care programs always have the best interests of the child at heart.

The Fostering Young Lives service ensures caseworkers and foster carers have the skills and resources to support children and young people to achieve their developmental, social and educational potential.

We equip carers with tools and strategies to recognise and address the effects of trauma, loss and change.

Part of building resilience and a positive sense of identity is encouraging children to maintain relationships with their birth family, and making sure their views are considered as part of decisions that affect their lives.

Support for foster carers

We’re always recruiting foster carers from diverse backgrounds. Our foster carers have access to 24/7 support, ongoing training and workshops.
