As the peak body for foster and kinship carers, Queensland Foster and Kinship Care Inc. (QFKC) is committed to support and advocacy. It is this support and advocacy that promotes and enhances the lives of children and young people in care. This survey is your opportunity to provide feedback.

We are committed to providing the best possible service we can to foster and kinship carers, and are seeking your thoughts on current practices so that we can continue to strive for excellence in an ever increasingly difficult environment. 

Your responses will assist QFKC to identify strengths and areas of concern that will contribute towards the development of initiatives to assist you and your families now and into the future. Information provided in this survey informs QFKC of the past and current support needs of foster and kinship carers and highlights possible future direction. Responses will also assist us to work with the Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs and foster and kinship care services to improve systems and practice in collaboration with our key stakeholders. Outcomes and initiatives directly related to this survey will be reported on through QFKC's website, social media platforms and the QFKC Reporter.

In January 2004, the Crime and Misconduct Commission report “Protecting Children: An inquiry into Abuse of Children in Foster Care" recommended that structured exit interviews with carers be conducted. 
 
 QFKC has been authorised to conduct these interviews. It is believed that the collection of this information will lead to changes that will improve the Foster Care system. 

All personal information provided will remain confidential. Information will be aggregated and will not be published in any way that might enable identification of individuals.
