The Foster Care Association of Victoria (FCAV) has developed the CARE Principle which is intended as a scaffold for conversation and reflective practice across the home-based care sector. 

It was borne from acknowledging the need for attention and priority to be given to the wellbeing and CARE of volunteer caregivers, whilst highlighting some fundamental principles of practice which seek to both recognise the value of carers, as well as enhance their overall experience in the sector. It is a tool to guide practice and using the word CARE to focus on key factors to inform and enhance carer service delivery - as a way of engaging in and maintaining respectful and productive working relationships.

The foster CARE Principle is a tool that can be utilised by all key participants in the sector (including carers themselves) and utilised directly by the FCAV to assist in creating constructive dialogue with sector colleagues, relating to its application in working directly with and supporting carers.
