If you would like to help a child in need, foster care is a great way to do it.
There are lots of different options for providing foster care, depending on your lifestyle and needs.
Baptcare is here to support you from your first call or email.
We provide training, answer your questions and offer you ongoing support 24/7.
Even if you don’t think you’re ready to become a carer we’re here to talk to you about what’s involved.
Who this service is for
Foster carers come from all walks of life
There is no such thing as a typical foster care household.
If you can provide a safe and nurturing environment for a child in need we’d love to talk to you.
Foster carers are required to be over 21 years of age, have adequate space in their home, no criminal record, and pass a police and relevant working with vulnerable persons/children check.
