Opening your home and heart to a child in need is a hugely rewarding experience. Our Carer Recruitment team can advise you how you can positively impact a child’s journey.

KARI carers provide a safe and loving home for vulnerable children in need of care and protection. Foster caring is varied; it may involve working with the family to restore the child home, providing short-term care and respite, or being a stable and secure long-term family for a child or sibling group.

Barbara’s Story

Why are Aboriginal Foster Carers needed?

The national rate of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in the child protection system, is almost 10 times the rate for non-Indigenous children. KARI needs Aboriginal carers to ensure these children have an opportunity to grow into resilient young people with a proud sense of identity.
