Meet the everyday Australians making an extraordinary difference.
We are currently caring for an energetic two year old. My partner and I also have our own child, who is four years of age. We have all learnt new skills and grown from the experience.
My partner and I care for three young siblings under the age of four. Seeing the girls settled and enjoying life means a lot to us.
We provide respite care every second weekend. It’s a good balance for us.
I’m a single parent and have been a foster carer for three years now. I believe that kids should be able to live safely and be in a home where they can thrive.
I’m single and in my 30s and observed that there are kids out there who need some guidance. If I can make a positive difference to a child’s life then it’s worth a go.
We both gave up our jobs to become full-time carers. So far we have cared for 85 kids over the past 12 years.
