Within Centacare’s program you will work as part of a care team to ensure that children can enjoy safe and secure homes. Carers are supported and receive ongoing training to prepare them for the joys and challenges of fostering.

Centacare Foster Care provides short-term, long-term and respite care for children from birth until adulthood. Many children within the program are cared for by foster families in short-term arrangements under Custody Order of the Chief Executive as part of a planned reunification with their birth family. For children on long-term custody orders, Centacare foster carers can provide care until the child or young person reaches the age of 18.

Do you have the desire to make a positive difference in a child’s life?

  • Are you empathetic and understanding?
  • Do you have a good understanding of the needs of children?
  • Do you have the capacity to provide care for a child?
  • Do you have a spare bedroom in your home?
  • Do you hold a current driver’s licence?

If you answered YES to all of the questions above we’d like to hear from you.
You may qualify to join our dedicated team of highly-trained and skilled foster carers.
