Becoming a Caregiver

MASP recruits caregivers to provide placements for children and young people who for a number of reasons are unable to live at home with their parents or extended family.

Caregivers come from a wide range of backgrounds and family circumstances and include mature couples, single parents, same sex couples and even single adults.

Caregiving is a rewarding experience and MASP provides initial and ongoing training and support.

A non taxable reimbursement is also paid for day to day expenses. The current rates are as follows:

Adolescent Community Placement (ACP) Standard - $195 per week.
ACP Intensive - $364 per week.
ACP Complex (Not High Risk) $395 per week.
ACP Complex (High Risk) $616 per week.
