Hear directly from MacKillop foster carers and their families who have opened their door to children in need of safe and nurturing homes.
Foster carers have diverse backgrounds. Some have extensive experience caring for children with families of their own who may have grown up and left home. Others still have their children and home, but have a spare room and capacity to care for more. Others are singles or childless couples who have the desire and capacity to care for a child in their community.
Whatever their background, what all foster carers have in common is an ability and a desire to provide a safe, nurturing, homes that can make a huge difference to a vulnerable child’s life.
