Foster Care Recruitment

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 support and understanding. Fostering starts with care. It's not always easy, but training and support is available. Fostering needs people with extraordinary hearts. People just like you.

Foster carers provide care in their own homes for children and young people who they are not related to biologically, for short or long periods of time.

Kinship carers

Kinship carers are related to the child or may be members of a child's community and considered family or close friends. They may be grandparents, aunts, uncles, other relatives or friends. For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, relative care may include another Aboriginal person or Torres Strait Islander who is a member of, or compatible with the child's community or language group.
