Who can get involved?

I work full time. Can I still foster?

Yes. You can work fulltime and foster. We tailor our support to ensure your foster care household and child/young person in your care thrives.


I am single. Can I still foster?

Yes. If you are a single person and have the energy and patience and care about children, you can become a foster carer.


Do I receive an allowance?

Foster care is not paid employment. Foster carers receive a tax-free fortnightly carer contribution based on the age of the child to help feed, clothe, educate and meet the needs of the foster child in their care.


What support is available to me?

We will guide you every step of the way, with full training and ongoing support. We support each foster care household with two professionals. One focussed on the child and case management. One focussed on all the carers in the household. Together they support both the placement and carers to achieve a stable and happy home for everyone.

An example of other supports include:

  • 24-hour support service
  • Respite Support
  • Ongoing training opportunities
  • Buddy system
  • Community building events
  • Gala Dinner
  • Online social media community, including an app
  • Carer Ambassador program
