Foster Care Recruitment

We need more foster carers, like you

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 care

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.
