Foster care

Foster care information sessions

Foster care information sessions cover the following topics:

  • what's involved in being a foster carer
  • steps to become a foster carer
  • roles and responsibilities of foster carers
  • support available to foster carers.

General foster care information sessions

General foster care agencies seek foster carers who can undertake:

  • emergency
  • short-term
  • respite
  • long-term care
  • a combination of these types of care.

Children needing general foster care placements range in age from infants through to teenagers.

General foster care agencies also seek foster carers who may be able to care for siblings.
