All types of people become foster carers
Children are all different. Foundations Care supports a diverse range of foster carers, which helps us find the right home for every child and young person.
We welcome carers with diverse cultural backgrounds. And people who are older, younger, married, single, LGBQTI, working full-time or staying at home.
What matters most is your desire to help a child in need by providing a safe and loving home.
You can choose the commitment that best suits your situation. From weekend or respite care, through to long-term care, there’s an option that’s right for you.
Our foster carers don’t do it alone
Caring for a child in need is incredibly rewarding. But it’s not always easy.
Foundations Care has been working with and advocating for foster carers for more than 20 years. We understand that the role of the foster carer is a crucial one in the lives of the children and young people in their care. To be a positive agent of change, foster carers need the best possible training and support.
We’ll be there with you, every step of the way.
