OzChild carers celebrated in Grand Style

After a two year hiatus, OzChild foster and kinship carers were celebrated at the Annual Carer Dinner event held on Friday the 29 April at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne.

This annual event provides us with the opportunity to celebrate and show gratitude to the amazing kinship and foster carers who are supporting children and young people.

More than 300 people attended the event where carers were recognised for their ongoing support and dedication towards making a difference in the lives of vulnerable children and young people.

During the night a special award presentation was held to acknowledge the outstanding commitment of three carers who were awarded with the Elizabeth Tudor Award, Jillian Wain Award and the JC Butler Award. Additionally, individuals and couples who have been caring for 10, 15 and 20 years were also recognised for their immense contribution.

The event was a great success, and we are privileged to be able to honour OzChild carers and thank them for their long-standing commitment.
