Yes, I can help a child!
By providing a stable home to a child or young person, foster carers help create a brighter future for those who may not have had the best start in life.
Many types of people can become foster carers. MacKillop foster carers come from all backgrounds and family types.
As a foster carer in Victoria you can:
- be single or have a partner
- have children of your own or not
- own or rent your home
- work, stay at home, study or be retired
- be from any culture or religion
You can provide care for a weekend, a few weeks, a few months or even years. You choose the period that suits you.
Most importantly, our carers share the desire to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children and young people in need.
Our Victorian foster care services operate:
- across Melbourne
- from Geelong to Colac and surrounding areas
- from Warrnambool to the South Australian border.
We have joined foster care agencies across Victoria to form Fostering Connections to make it easier to find out more about becoming a foster carer.
MacKillop is currently recruiting and training foster carers in Victoria. Can you help give a child or young person a brighter future?
