Can you make a difference in a child’s life in your community?
If you are able to care for a child/children in your own home for a night, a week, a month, or a year or more, OzChild are looking for foster carers to help families that do not have support networks to care for their children in a time of crisis.
While foster care can be challenging at times, the rewards can be life-changing. We will provide you with full training and ongoing support with the aim of safely reuniting children back to their families or where it is in the child’s best interest.
Race, gender, marital status, employment, sexuality and religion do not affect a person’s ability to become a Foster Carer. Anyone who is available to provide safe and appropriate care for children is eligible to apply to become a Foster Carer with OzChild.
