Alternative Care Information Sessions

As part of the initial assessment process, people interested in becoming foster carers are invited to attend an information session. Information sessions are usually conducted in small groups of people interested in knowing more about providing foster care.

During the information session you will hear detailed information about foster care and hear experiences from current foster carers. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the foster carer and an assessment worker.

The information session will also assist you to:

  • consider the implications of undertaking a foster care role, including how it may impact upon your family and friends
  • become better informed about the significant responsibilities of foster carers
  • determine what type of foster care is best suited to your situation e.g. long term, emergency, respite or short term care.

 

Schedule
