2019 Carer Snapshot Data

The Foster Care Association of Victoria conducts an annual review of the state of foster care in Victoria.

Community Service Organisations (CSOs) including Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCOs) provide the data based on the carer households affiliated with each of its offices. Typically data is collected within a two week timeframe in March.


Our March 2019 Carer Snapshot data shows an increase of 54 active carer households since March 2018.

The 2018 totals of newly accredited and exited carer households indicated an overall net gain of 33 Carer Households from Jan-Dec 2018.

With the increase in need for foster carers across Victoria this slight increase does not meet the demand.
