Within Centacare’s program you will work as part of a care team, to ensure that children can enjoy safe, secure homes and that carers are supported to prepare them for both the challenges of fostering and reunification.

Centacare provides Foster Care for children aged 0-17 years who have a reunification plan with their birth family. Children within the program are generally on short-term Guardianship Orders with placement lengths ranging between 6-18 months. There are also children in our program on long-term orders for which we recruit, train and support long-term Foster carers.

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

  • Are you over 25?
  • 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?

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

Contact our Support Team for more details or to book a place at one of our Information Sessions
