We have been supporting local families for over 20 years with dedicated and passionate staff who are committed to the welfare of clients and child/ren in their care. As a small, local community based organisation, we are flexible and agile in our approach, ensuring our foster and kinship care families have the one on one support they need throughout their journey and beyond.

16,396

480

family members were provided kinship care, information and advice in 2019-20

We work with a number of governing bodies including The Department of Family, Fairness and Housing to coordinate placements and ensure the best possible outcome is achieved for children in our care.

We have a number of initiatives to achieve this including:

  • Flexible training opportunities
  • Dedicated case mangers
  • Ongoing support from our team and other carers
  • A flexible and community based organisation that will go the extra mile for you and your family.
