Shared Family Care
- Our Shared Family Care service supports children who have experienced neglect, emotional, physical or sexual abuse or any combination and require care through Fostering programs. Foster Carers provide a safe and caring environment for children, aged from birth to 18 years, who require this sort of out of home care. This can be for a few days, weeks or several years. Foster Carers provide an invaluable volunteer service in the support of these children and young people..
