Foster carers needed
Carers are needed in NSW for respite and emergency situations, medium-term restoration care arrangements and long-term options such as guardianship, open adoption and long-term fostering.
If you’re already thinking about becoming a foster carer, you’re meant to be one. A big heart and the hope you can help a child have a brighter future are two important qualities all people who care for children share.
At upcoming information sessions around NSW, you will:
- find out more about the different types of care
- hear from current foster carers about their experience
- meet the service providers in your area
- find out more about the ongoing support and training you’ll receive.
To be a foster carer, you must be:
- ideally over the age of 25
- an Australian citizen or permanent resident
- in good health
- without a criminal record.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to attend the information sessions.
