Become a Foster Carer

Be amazing, be a foster carer. It’s the simple things foster carers can do that can have a big impact on a child’s life.

You don’t need to have any special skills, talents or expertise to become a carer.

We are looking for people and families from all walks of life who could care for children and young people in their own homes. We need carers who could provide care to sibling groups, single children of all ages and adolescents who have complex needs. Carers can choose to help on a short-term, medium-term, or long-term basis.

Here at Anchor, we are committed to partnering with our foster carers, providing initial and ongoing training opportunities, and support which includes after hours telephone support if and when needed.

Becoming a foster carer.

There are four simple steps to become a foster carer:

  1. Submit application
  2. Complete training and detailed family assessment (including police/working with children checks)
  3. Become accredited
  4. Participate in ongoing training and peer support
