Out-of-Home Care

Anglicare Out-of-Home Care (OOHC) provides foster care, adoption, adolescent residential care as well as youth and family assistance to children, young people and families engaged in the OOHC system in NSW.

Foster Care

Anglicare Sydney provides foster care throughout Metropolitan Sydney within NSW Department of Family and Community Services metropolitan districts.

Children come into foster care for many different reasons. It may not be safe for them to remain with their birth family as they may be at risk of harm from neglect or abuse. Some parents are not able to provide adequate care for their child due to ill health, drug and alcohol addiction or intellectual disabilities.  Anglicare provides Foster Care to make a difference for these children by providing them with a foster family to nurture, encourage and relate to them in a caring, understanding home environment.

Adoptions

Anglicare Adoption Services works with parents who are thinking about placing their child for adoption and with prospective adoptive families to achieve the best outcome for each individual child.
This includes the provision of counselling, pre-adoption care and post-adoption support for both adoptive and birth families.
