Become a carer

Do you have a place in your heart and a place in your home to make a real difference to a child’s life?

No matter how long a child stays with you, as a foster carer you can make a difference to their life in a way that stays with them forever.

Make a difference. Become a carer.

Same but different kinds of families needed.

Foster families come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.  In many ways they are no different to ‘other’ families - they provide love, care, support, stability, structure and a sense of belonging.

Fostering is incredibly rewarding for both the carers and the children, and like any parenting it is also challenging. As a foster carer you will experience happy and sad times, and everything in between.

Everyday organised chaos. Happy days. Sad days. Pulling out your hair days. Tough days. Good days.

There is a type of care to suit your family.

There are various types of carers needed – foster, kinship, emergency, respite, adoptive parents and guardians.  A child may need care for one night, for a week, for months or years.

A special community awaits you. 

You’re invited to be part of a special carer community across NSW where you will be trained and supported in your journey to become a foster carer and where you will form bonds and make friends for life.

At the moment, there aren’t enough foster carers to care for children in need across New South Wales. Put simply, we need more carers for all types of care.
