Real foster carers lead new campaign for Foster Care Week

Stories from real foster carers lead a new campaign by Fostering Connections to encourage Victorians to foster a child.

“These stories are a window into the real role of foster carers,” said Deb Tsorbaris, CEO of the Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare.

“Foster Care Week is a time to celebrate foster carers who open their heart and home for children and young people.”

“Foster care can vastly improve a child’s future and greatly reduce their chances of homelessness, unemployment, mental and physical health concerns, and involvement with the criminal justice system.”

“This is an important campaign showing how families from all walks of life can foster a child.”
