Aboriginal Foster Care Agencies

MacKillop Family Services aims to place children and young people with carers who can help them keep their cultural identity and connections.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander foster carers

We value placements with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, that can create and maintain positive cultural connections for these children while they are away from their families.

We welcome Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander foster carers to work with us.

However, if you are interested in caring specifically for Aboriginal children and young people, or you would like to work specifically with an Aboriginal organisation, we encourage you to contact one of our Aboriginal partner organisations.
