Foster Care

The experience of sharing a loving home with a child or young person in need is a true gift. At CatholicCare Sydney we’re committed to helping children, young people and their families. Foster care offers children and young people the support of a loving family environment while decisions are made about their future. The time foster carers give – be it a few weeks, months or permanent arrangement – can make a world of difference in a child’s life.


Our Services for Foster Care

Foster Care provides care and support to children and young people who cannot live at home with their parents for a period of time. This may be because of a family crisis, risk of harm or parents experiencing difficulties in caring for their children.

Becoming a foster carer is challenging, but it’s also one of the most rewarding things you can do. Do you have room in your heart for a foster child?
