Short term foster care information days

The Barnardos Temporary Foster Care Program's are holding free information days for those interested in becoming short term foster carers. 

We are looking for people who can open their hearts and homes to children in need of short term care for up to 2 years. Short term care is provided to children who have been removed from their parents due to child protection issues. We are seeking people who are able to care for young children full time whilst their case is being heard in the Children’s Court. 

Our foster carers are:

  • Everyday families, singles or couples with or without children, same sex or heterosexual couples
  • People with patience, flexibility, persistence and a sense of humour
  • Non smokers
  • People who enjoy children and can offer a safe and stable environment
  • Have a spare bedroom 
  • Able to drive and have access to a car

If your interested in finding out more about becoming a short term foster carer then drop in to one of our information days below, no appointment necessary. Your children are also welcome to attend with you.
