SSI Multicultural Foster Care is a specialist out-of-home care service for children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds aged 0-18 years. The service operates in parts of metropolitan Sydney and the Hunter-Central Coast area.
At SSI, we believe children in care who are supported to learn about and maintain a connection to their culture, religion and language have better outcomes as they grow up than those who are not supported in this way. These connections help children to understand where they have come from and to develop their sense of belonging and identity.
Helping children stay connected with their culture, language and religion also helps children settle if and when they are returned to their birth parents.
