Event description

Description

Shared Stories Shared Lives (SSSL) is a free and comprehensive two day workshop for people who have an interest in becoming accredited foster carers. Apart from the opportunity to ask everything you want to know about fostering, the SSSL is a mandatory training for all of those who want to become a registered carer in NSW.

It will happen on June 14 and 15, Wednesday and Thursday, from 9:30am to 3:30pm.


  • Registration is essential prior to the event. Please ensure your contact details are correct as your attendance will depend on our ability to contact you over the phone prior to the event.

  • Attendance on both days is required. In case you cannot attend one of the days, please remeber you'll need to wait until the next session is available in your region so you can complete your training. Thanks in advance for your registration.




The SSSL is an interactive training that gives you the chance to ask all questions you might have about having a young person under your care for short of long periods of time. It focuses in the challenges, rewards, rights and duties of foster carers in NSW. The SSSL is also a great chance to learn about education, trauma and children development.

If you wish to talk to CASPA Lismore office, please call (02) 6627 3700 or e-mail caspa@caspa.asn.au.

Opportunity
CASPA is also currently recruiting "in house cares" for Lismore and Coffs Harbour regions
-
Specifically, we have vacancies for two 'in
-house’ foster carers who will provide 24/7 care in a house that is set up by CASPA for a sibling group of three children aged 4 to 12 years old in the Lismore/Casino area. Live in carers will need to have a range of skills that includes consistent and supportive responses to outbursts (which CASPA will support), as well as strong nurturing and emotionally supportive approaches. It is CASPA’s goal to keep these children together and offer a stable placement that supports the needs of the children.

Apart from a rent free house, CASPA covers all costs of utilities, costs for the children, provides a fully maintained vehicle with fuel card and a generous tax-free carer allowance. For more info, please click in the following link: CASPA In House Carer EOI Lismore and Coffs.pdf
