At Barnardos, the health and wellbeing of our foster carers, and the children they care for, remains our highest priority. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are ceasing group information sessions and face to face assessments for the time being.

Despite these uncertain times, our need for foster carers to care for vulnerable children will continue to grow. We therefore remain committed to providing information, support and training to any potential carers, and are looking at moving toward on-line information sessions in order to do so. We will let you know once these sessions are in place via our website and Facebook page. In the meantime please contact our carer recruitment team for more information about becoming a foster carer on 1800 663 441.

We also hold video information nights in the ACT. For more information please visit ACT Together.
