Can you be extraordinary for a child who needs an ordinary life?
Foster carers help families that do not have support networks to care for their children in a time of crisis.
They provide a safe and loving home, whether it be for a night, a week or longer term.
Anyone can be a foster carer
Race, gender, marital status, employment, sexuality and religion do not affect a person’s eligibility to become a foster carer.
OzChild also provides full training and ongoing support with the aim of safely reuniting children back to their families. While foster care can be challenging at times, the rewards can be life-changing.
In a recent carer survey, OzChild was the overall highest ranked foster care organisation providing support with measures including respect, support and communication.*
