MEDIA RELEASE: Foster Carer 2017 Snapshot data released

The Foster Care Association of Victoria today released the 2017 Foster Carer Snapshot. FCAV conducts an annual review of the state of foster care in Victoria.

 

Community Service Organisations advise FCAV of the number of foster carer households under their patronage, within a two-week timeframe in March, thereby providing a 'snapshot' about the status of foster care in Victoria.

 

This year the data shows an encouraging trend towards an increase in recruitment of new foster carers in Victoria. Click here to view the Snapshot.


This trend was also reflected in our Carer Census data released last week which showed a large proportion of responders (42%) are new carers who have been caring for up to one year.
