Support for non parent carers

As well as the resources listed in the other sections, there is specific information and support for people who are non parent carers of children. 

This includes:

  • Services Australia has grandparent advisers who offer information and referrals to help grandparents and other non parent carers provide ongoing care for children
  • Caring for Kids for information for carers raising children in out of home care
  • Raising Them Strong to help Aboriginal foster carers and kinship carers looking after Aboriginal children. Those looking after Aboriginal children with disability can find information at Raising Them Strong: Caring Together.
  • information on adopting a child and the support services available.
