When children are unable to live at their own home, they need a safe and secure environment.

Specialist Family Preservation Foster Care Program offers services to children in metropolitan Adelaide. Operating within the parameters of the Children’s Protection Act 1993 and the philosophy of the Aboriginal Child Placement Principle, we work hard to encourage and support children being returned to the care of their birth families.

We provide children with a safe and secure environment while they are unable to live at home. Our Foster Carers are trained and supported to best assist a child during this time of uncertainty, providing them with consistency and care during the transition back to their birth family or into the care of long term Foster Carers.

Our Foster Carers are special people and they undergo an extensive assessment process and children are carefully matched to appropriate families. They have access to on-going education, training and development and receive regular contact and support from their Carer Support Worker.
