Home Based Care - Gippsland

Foster care is sometimes challenging, but our carers say the rewards far outweigh the tough times. 

 

A stable and caring home is the crucial first step for many young people as they recover from the effects of trauma, abuse and neglect. Evidence suggests that when young people are in a stable and caring home, they begin their journey to heal. 

 

At Uniting, our Foster Care Program provides carers with the training and advice they need to support vulnerable children and young people in our community. 

 

With over 100 years of experience bringing carers and children together, we'll support you in your journey to becoming a foster carer. 

 

We welcome all types of carers. If you think you can support a child or young person, we would love to hear from you.
