Become a Carer

In Queensland, we have approximately 5200 foster and kinship carers from all walks of life, however, we always need more.

Carers can come from diverse cultural backgrounds and can be male, female, single, married or de facto, same sex couples and working either full or part time. If you are committed to providing a safe, stable, and supportive environment, you could be a carer too.

If you think your care could make the difference in a young person's life, we have the support and advice to help you - and some simple ways to get started.
