With nearly 50,000 children in Australia currently unable to live safely with their birth families, and almost 20,000 of those living in NSW, we are always looking for foster carers.
Through no fault of their own, there are many and varied reasons why children and young people come into foster care. They come from all walks of life, all ages, and come from different cultural backgrounds. However, most come from complicated family backgrounds or situations where they may have experienced neglect, abuse, or trauma.
The importance of foster carers in our community cannot be underestimated. Being a foster carer is no ordinary role; it comes with a range of responsibilities, and each day can bring new challenges, life-changing experiences and great rewards.
