Being a foster carer can be rewarding and full of love – and like everything that’s worthwhile, it can be challenging too. But our carers say that it’s the best thing they ever did.
Specialised Foster Care services in WA
Foster carers provide children and young people with a stable, secure and nurturing family environment where their fundamental daily needs are met.
Evidence shows that children thrive when they are in a safe and supportive family environment where they can form meaningful relationships. This support becomes even more critical when the child lives with a history of significant trauma and abuse, and high support needs due to disability or illness.
We believe that all children have the right to grow and develop in a safe environment with access to stable, consistent and nurturing care. We also believe that the needs of all children are generally best met in a family environment.
The Uniting Foster Care service connects foster carers with children and young people across Perth and WA who have complex support needs and aren’t able to live in their family home.
It’s a big commitment to support a young person to develop to their full potential, but it’s also one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever do.
