NSW needs carers from all cultural and language backgrounds to care for children to help keep Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) kids connected to family, community, language, religion and culture.
Wherever possible, CALD kids are placed with carers of the same cultural background.

- ongoing training and support
- access to translation services*
- referral to a foster care agency that is able provide culturally appropriate support.
*For an interpreter call: 131 450
If you are from a culturally and linguistically diverse background, have a big heart and commitment to keeping children connected to their family, community and culture then we want to hear from you!

My Forever Family NSW assists carers who do not share a cultural background with the children in their care.
Carers can do a lot to keep kids connected with their communities and nurture their sense of identity. See the CALD section on our resources page.
