The dates for Foster and Kinship Carers Week will be changing in 2016.
Foster and Kinship Carer Week will be held in the last week of April in 2016 (25-30 April). It will be a celebration of the dedication and commitment of Queensland's foster and kinship carers who provide children and young people with a safe, loving and stable home.
There are currently more than 4700 carer families in Queensland who find room in their hearts and homes for more than 7400 children and young people in care.
The week offers an opportunity to highlight the selfless work by foster and kinship carers, thank them for their efforts and raise the profile of foster and kinship caring in the community.
The department is partnering with Foster Care Queensland, as well as local agencies, on the development of activities to be held with foster and kinship carers across the state during the week.
More information about Foster and Kinship Carer Week and the activities planned will be available here in early 2016.
