When a child or young person cannot live with his/her own parents or extended family, a safe place is required for him/her to stay. Foster carers nurture these young people, providing stability and support, empowering them to reach their full potential.
CatholicCare plans are always developed with the child in mind. We have a great team of clinical psychologists and support staff to assess children and provide ongoing support. Caseworkers and the carer support team play a dynamic role.
Child-centred case plans are developed in consultation with our carers. Our experience shows the best outcome for the child is only possible when plans are implemented in partnership with quality carers.
