The International Foster Care Conference (IFCO2022) organised by the International Foster Care Organisation was held in Darwin on 23-25 September 2022.

Christie Di Mattina, Barnardos Temporary Family Care Program Manager and Sandra Dutton, foster carer of 18 years, presented on Recruitment, Support and Retention.

Both spoke about the importance of foster care retention, recruitment, support and their importance to the recovery of children and young people experiencing trauma and abuse. Sandy captivated the audience as she shared her foster care journey and the amazing support she received from Barnardos.
This was a momentous day to celebrate all foster carers that open their homes and hearts to help each child reach their brightest future.
