OUR KIDS ARE OUR FUTURE. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR LIVES.

The ATSICHS Brisbane Foster and Kinship Care program is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander developed and implemented program that provides stability of placement for children in care so they stay connected to their community and culture, and their identity remains strong and alive.

We do this by working with our carers, to ensure that you feel supported, valued and most importantly listened to. Our care team is made up of passionate and skilled workers who understand and can walk with you, by empowering you with tools and strategies to do one of the most valuable jobs…. care for our most vulnerable children.

If you’ve ever thought about being a foster or kinship carer, have a look at our video and see how we can make it happen with you. You’ll hear from some of our care workers who will support you and some current carers who talk about their role and the rewards they get from seeing a smile on the face of a child and knowing they have made that child’s life better.

YOU CARE FOR OUR KIDS, WE’LL CARE FOR YOU

We know that deciding to become a foster carer is a big decision. That’s why we will be there to help and guide you every step of the way. We provide training and ongoing support to all our foster carers to ensure your placement is successful for you, your family and any children who may come into your care. We will also provide a range of supported activities and gatherings.

Each month we have morning tea gatherings, where you can meet and share stories with other carers. The morning includes professional training sessions. All morning teas run from 10am-1pm and are held at ATSICHS Child and Family Centre, 6 Glenda St, Waterford West.
