When it comes to foster care, it is not a one size fits all approach, and we encourage people from different backgrounds, experiences and family types to consider becoming a foster carer.

For example, our foster carers are: 

  • Single, married, de facto or same-sex relationship
  • Renting or own their own home
  • Working fulltime, part time or stay at home
  • From a diverse range of cultures with a diverse range of life experience
  • Dedicated to maintaining and supporting children’s connection with their Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander family, community and culture
  • Committed to meeting the needs of the children and young people they care for
  • Committed to attending ongoing therapeutic, cultural awareness and other training

To be a foster carer with VACCA, you must: 

  • Be aged 21 years or over
  • Have good physical and emotional health
