Foster Carers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and lifestyles, and have a common goal of providing safe and loving homes for children and young people who can’t remain in the care of their parents.
Foster Carers have to be 21 years of age or older and can be:
- Single men and women
- Single parents
- Couples with or without children
- People working or retired
Foster Carers are provided with training and ongoing support via MASP, to ensure they feel confident to meet the needs of the children and young people they are caring for. This is inclusive of case management and after hours support.
