Encourage more Queenslanders to become foster carers by sharing our latest campaign material

The advertising campaign — We need more foster carers, like you — features a series of advertisements and videos that share the stories of real foster carers. It includes carers from all walks of life including single, married or in de-facto relationships, and with or without their own biological children. These carers provide authentic and useful insights about what it’s like to be a foster carer.

People who are interested in becoming a foster carer are encouraged to visit this campaign site, where they can view the stories of the carers, learn more about foster care, read answers to the top questions about foster care, submit an expression of interest, or call Queensland Foster and Kinship Care on 1300 550 877.
