No two children, young people, or families are the same. When it comes to foster care, we offer a range of placement types to meet the unique needs of children who require a home to support their varied circumstances.
All types of care matter!
A child can be placed in care for a night, a week, several months or until they are ready to become an independent adult. The length of time a child stays with a carer is determined individually, according to their best interests.
Carers are encouraged to choose the type of care that fits in with their life and family. CatholicCare also has a comprehensive process for endeavouring to find the best match for children with a family, and you are an active participant in that journey.
