Foster Care is a form of family-based care for children and young people who cannot stay at home. Foster carers are everyday people and play a valued role in our community for our mob. Foster Carers are part of a team of people who work to provide safe and supportive environments for vulnerable children and young people who cannot stay at home for various reasons. Our carers may provide care for one or two nights, a few months or even years depending on the situation.
Where possible, children are reunited with their families as soon as possible. Carers can also assist this process through a commitment to maintain ongoing relationships between children and their families.
