Caring for Carers Program

The Caring for Carers Program run by the Foster Care Association is dedicated to providing wellbeing activities and gifts to carers, so they can continue to provide a brighter future for the children in their care. 


Foster carers dedicate their lives to supporting the most vulnerable children and young people in our communities and are at risk of compassion fatigue and burnout themselves.


The carer wellbeing activities of the Program have a big impact on carers who identify feeling more appreciated, connected and renewed in their role and in their lives. This has obvious benefit to the lives of the children and young people in their care.


This program includes:

  1. Carers Retreats
  2. Long Lunches
  3. Thank You Bank
