We believe in children.

45,000 Australian children are unable to live with their parents due to abuse or neglect.*

We urgently need more foster carers! Could you open your home and heart to give a child hope when they need it most? *AIHW 17/18

Become a foster carer

What we do

Barnardos Australia believes all children and young people deserve caring families in which they can grow safely and fulfil their potential.

We work together with children, young people and families to break the cycle of disadvantage, creating safe, nurturing and stable homes, connected to family and community.

Our impact in 2017 - 2018

Have you ever thought about becoming a foster carer?

If you are interested in becoming a foster carer and would like to understand what is involved in fostering a child then come along to one of our free information sessions. These are held throughout the year at various locations and times so why not find the closest one to you.

No questions are too big or small.
