The Kinship Care program provides care and support for Aboriginal children who are unable to live with their parents. The children are cared for by a relative, close friend or a member of their community in the carer’s own home.

Children may be in kinship care because of concerns about their protection, or because their parents are experiencing difficulties and need a break.

We offer

  • Placement support and case management
  • Information and advice to Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal kinship carers and permanent carers
  • Support Kinship Care families
  • Cultural connection support
  • Group support and activities.
