Every week, Anglicare receives more than 100 requests to provide a safe home for a child in crisis.
Children come into foster care for all sorts of reasons… but uprooting them from their lives and homes always comes as a last resort. Something that’s necessary to keep them safe from the harm of neglect or abuse.
As one of our amazing foster carers, you can make a real difference. Whether you’re single, married or in a long-term relationship of two years or more, if you’re over 21 (and in good health) you’re exactly who kids in need are looking for!
As an Anglicare foster carer, you can be confident you’ll have the help you deserve at every step. In addition to support from your foster child’s case manager, you’ll also have:
As a foster carer, you’re never alone. You’re a part of a team – case manager, medical professionals and other support workers – all joining together to help a child have a full and happy childhood.
It probably goes without saying that a great foster carer should love being around kids. However, what you may not realise is that no special experience is needed to be exactly who a child might need. The best foster carers are not childcare experts or parents themselves. They’re normal people like you who have a heart for kids in need and a willingness to learn.
