Welcome letter from the CEO

Thank you for your interest to volunteer with Adopt Change within the My Forever Family NSW program. Accompanying this letter is information about your volunteering role, volunteers rights and responsibilities and My Forever Family NSW and Adopt Change contact details.

My Forever Family engages potential and existing foster carers, kinship carers, guardians and adoptive parents of children from out-of-home care and provides information and recruitment, training, professional support, peer support and advocacy services throughout New South Wales.

We work within the out-of-home care service system to assist the most vulnerable children and young people in NSW – those who have been unable to live at home. More information is provided on our website.

We engage with volunteers who may be current authorised carers, former carers or others who are committed, community minded professionals to contribute to the My Forever Family service.

There are also forms included for your consideration.

  • Application Form including who can apply for volunteering, contact information, Working With Children Check, National Police Check and driver’s licence requirements
  • Volunteer Agreement
  • Non-disclosure Agreement
  • Child Safety and Wellbeing Code of Conduct.

Please return a signed copy of these agreements to Adopt Change. Keep a copy for your personal records.

On behalf of Adopt Change, I would like to thank you for your interest to volunteer within our service to support families in NSW.

If you have any questions or concerns about your role, your health and safety, or if there is any assistance you need to help you undertake your role, please contact us.

We look forward to working alongside you.

Best Regards,

Renee Carter
