Thank you to our Carers!

This week, we're celebrating all our Carers and the incredible work they do to support and nurture the children and young people in their care. Throughout Foster Care Week, we've organised some very special guests to say thank you and show just how much we all appreciate everything that Carers do.

A message from Aunty Di Kerr

Our first guest Aunty Diane Kerr is a respected Elder of the Wurundjeri Tribe, who has devoted many years to her local community as a mentor and foster carer.

Aunty Di has worked in various fields including child care, education, native title, stolen generation support, and other community work but her passion lies in the area of social, and emotional wellbeing of the Aboriginal communities.

We hope you enjoy Aunty Di's Welcome to Country video - stay tuned for more videos throughout the week!
