Fostering NSW foster forum

This forum is designed to give you the chance to ask all the questions you have about every aspect of fostering children and young people; knowing they will be answered by the people who really know - foster carers.

The Fostering NSW online forum is the first of its kind in Australia and aims to provide a safe online environment where you can find out more about the realities of being a foster carer, and find support if you are already are one.

We will share with you current information about foster care and start regular discussions about relevant and interesting topics. You can chat with others who have first hand experience and get a greater insight into this rewarding and valuable role.

Answering your questions will be Foster Carer Ambassadors - a network of real foster carers from all over NSW, and from all walks of life, so you can be assured you are getting trustworthy information from a voice of experience. Our Ambassadors are carers affiliated with UnitingCare Burnside, Life Without Barriers, Allambi Youth Services, MacKillop Family Services, Samaritans, Challenge Children's Services, Lifestyle Solutions and FaCS. We also have a panel of Content Experts we can call on for more technical or legal questions.
