FCW2021 transparent no logo 004Foster Care Week 12 -18 September 2021

 

Foster Care Week is an annual event which celebrates and raises awareness about foster care in the care services sector and within the wider community. The events and celebrations held during foster care week aim to highlight and appreciate our valuable pool of foster carers and the contribution they make to the lives of vulnerable children and young people in our community.

 

2021 Theme: “Adaptability” Caring through COVID and the changed care environment

 

Celebrating carer’s adaptability and the sector’s adaptability to meet their needs:

 

  • Keeping children and young people safe and connected during a pandemic.
  • Adapting to the needs of the sector by undertaking increased responsibility with decreased access to supports.
  • Continued to provide a vital community service, in a health crisis, as dedicated volunteers
  • The multifaceted adaptations of the sector and service provision, support and the carer role and some of those adaptations that will be retained into the future such as online training, online therapeutic support, podcasts, webinars and online connectivity engaging remote and regional foster care members and keeping all carers and their supports connected during lockdowns and restrictions.

 

We are so pleased to invite carers to attend the FCAV Carer Celebration and AGM (restrictions allowing). Click here to find out more and register: Carer Celebration & AGM | Foster Care Association of Victoria (fcav.org.au)
