Foster Care Information Sessions
Foster Care Information Sessions are a great way for us to meet you and an opportunity for you to hear a bit more information about the process of becoming a registered foster carer.
To give you the best possible picture of what it’s like to be a foster carer, we also invite one of our current foster carers to come along, so you can hear first hand about their fostering experiences and ask any questions you may have.
Please see details below regarding our upcoming Foster Care Information Sessions.
If you would like to find out more about foster care prior to attending one of our information sessions, you can download our information booklet below.

Our Foster Care 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, and;
- consider what type of foster care may be best suited to your situation. However, you don't have to determine what type of care you prefer before you speak with us or submit your Registration of Interest. The process to becoming a foster carer is the same, regardless of which type of care you choose, and your Assessment Worker can help you identify where your strengths may be throughout your assessment process.
You can register for an information session by phone on (08) 8337 8787, email firstname.lastname@example.org or register for an information session online.
Our information sessions run for approximately two hours with a scheduled break in the middle.
"Being a foster carer is all about providing children with the stability to grow and bloom into the beautiful young people they deserve to be."
