Your foster care agency undertakes your caregiver assessment, facilitates training and is the contact for and offers support to you in your caring role with children and/or young people.


Separate to this, the FCAV is the voice of foster carers and works to improve the system for the children and young people in home-based care. FCAV responds to government consultations to influence policy development, as well as driving action on themes that we see emerging through our Carer Support Service, Forums and Surveys.


By becoming an FCAV member you add your views as foster care families to our work and assist in ensuring a better system for our children and young people.


Whilst we strive to cover information across the care sector, if you are not a foster carer you may want to join your peak body to get the most relevant information for your caring experience.
