Foster Care Week 9-15 September 2018

Foster Care Week raises awareness about foster care in the wider community, however, in 2018 as with previous years, the events held during foster care week aim to celebrate and appreciate our pool of amazing foster carers and the invaluable contribution they are making to the lives of vulnerable children and young people and the community as a whole.


The 2018 Theme is: A Piece of Your Heart 

…recognising the piece of your heart you give to every child or young person who comes into your care and the piece of your heart they take with them into the future.


The Foster Care Association will be hosting a calendar of events taking place around the state, which will celebrate Foster Carers. See below for Victorian foster care agencies events and celebrations to be held over Foster Care Week September 9th – 15th 2018.



While these events are by invitation only, if you are a foster carer with any of the below agencies and haven't registered to attend an event, please RSVP as below.
