Foster and kinship care


We help caring Queenslanders open their doors and hearts

Sadly in Queensland, new children enter the child protection system every day. You can help create a better tomorrow by becoming a foster carer with us - one of Queensland's largest foster care providers.

Every year, our carers provide safe, stable and nurturing homes for almost 3,000 children aged 0-17 who've sadly suffered, or are at risk of suffering, abuse or neglect and can no longer live at home. 

Anyone can apply to be a foster carer with us - you just need to be 18 or over, living in Queensland and be able to provide a safe, stable and caring home. Some of our carers have foster children full-time, while others step in when needed for a day or so as respite carers.
