Foster care Brisbane North: attend one of our information sessions

If you’re interested in becoming a foster or kinship carer, you can attend an information session in Caboolture and Brisbane’s northside. These sessions will help you learn from our experienced intake team about the process and benefits of being a foster parent, and address any questions you may have.

We understand the importance of cultural identity

We respect the cultural identity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their right to remain connected to their community and families. When this is not feasible, our Caboolture-based cultural support workers assist non-indigenous foster carers and staff to understand the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander foster children in care, and to support them in a holistic way that respects their family, spiritual, community and personal needs. The team also encourages young people to build a strong sense of identity through activities that acknowledge their culture.
