Foster carers

Foster carers come from all walks of life. But no matter who they are, carers all have one thing in common. Foster carers have a place in their hearts for a child who needs love and understanding. Fostering starts with care. It’s not always easy, but training and support is available. It’s a special job that needs people with extraordinary hearts. People just like you.

Kinship carers

Kinship carers provide care in their own homes for a relative, family member, close friend, or a member of the child or young person's community. For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, a kinship carer may be an Indigenous person who is a member of a similar family group, community, clan, tribe or community that is similar to the child’s clan, or from the same language group.
