Become a carer

Make a difference. Become a carer.

Young people in care need your help.

Looking after older children and teenagers is about more than being their carer.  It's about being a mentor, supporter and helping them find their path in life in order to thrive. If you would like to know what's involved in caring for teens and tweens, give us a call on  1300 782 975, email us enquiries@myforeverfamily.org.au  or fill in the form below and a member of our carer support team will be in touch.

Families of all shapes and sizes

There are lots of myths about who can and can't become a carer but foster families come in all shapes and sizes.  In many ways they are no different to any other family - they provide the love, care, support, stability, structure and a sense of belonging that all children need. Give us a call or come along to an Information Session to find out what type of care is right for you and your family.

Information sessions

My Forever Family NSW hold online and in-person Information Sessions in all areas of NSW. To see all upcoming Information Sessions and to register your interest go to www.eventsforchange.org.au/infosession

Discover the type of care that suits your family.

Whatever your situation, there is a type of care to suit your circumstances.  A child may need care for one night, a week or for months or years. Whether it’s foster, kinship, emergency, respite, adoption or guardianship care - My Forever Family NSW can help you find the right fit for your family. 

At the moment, there aren’t enough carers to meet the needs of children in need across NSW. Simply put, there is a serious need for more carers for all types of care.  

This short, introductory video will help you understand the different types of care.
