Become a Foster Carer

Foster carers provide temporary homes for children and young people who are subject to Child Protection Orders. The children range from newborns to teenagers, and may stay for a night, a few weeks, or for years.

We are always looking for people who are able to provide a secure, nurturing environment, and the willingness to take on a challenging, yet immensely rewarding role.

  • Foster carers can be people of all ages, cultural backgrounds and walks of life.
  • It doesn’t matter if you’re single, a couple, or a family with children of your own.
  • Our carers reflect the diversity of the communities we serve, and we welcome carers from Indigenous and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
  • You might live in a large regional centre or in a small town, but wherever you live, there is a place for you in Anglicare Central Queensland’s foster carer community.

Kinship Care

Kinship carers provide care to children in their extended family, community or cultural network.

Kinship care maintains the child’s existing connection to their family, community and culture, and kinship carers may be a biological family member, part of a school or sporting community, or a connection to the child’s cultural group.
