Following the State Government’s easing of social gathering restrictions, face-to-face foster care information sessions have resumed. Appropriate protocols will be in place to support physical distancing to ensure the health and wellbeing of attendees.
Please access the yearly calendar to find a foster care information session near you and RSVP to the local District Office you wish to attend.
If you live in the metropolitan area you must attend a foster care information session before you can apply to be a foster carer. The local District Office may provide the opportunity to attend in person or join the session online.
Information sessions in areas outside of the metropolitan area are variable. Please contact your local District Office for further information. If you are located in a regional area you may like to watch this online information session video or view the PowerPoint slides.
For more information please call 1800 182 178 to speak to one of our specialist foster care recruitment officers or visit the Foster Carer recruitment page.
