The Foster Care Association of the ACT is an organisation run by foster, kinship and respite carers for foster, kinship and respite carers.
We help with:
Individual advocacy - you are not alone, no matter what the issue;
Peer support - we understand because we are carers too;
Learning and training opportunities – this gives better outcomes for everyone;
Lobbying to improve the system – we want a quality system and best practice in the alternative home-based care system;
- Ensuring the carer voice is heard – nothing about us, without us!
For media comment:
No media spokesperson has been appointed by the board. Please email FCA using Contact Us.
- We are lobbying to improve interstate information sharing about babies and children at risk.
- New Out Of Home Care contracts are being finalised (February 2016).
- As part of the changes to how Foster and Kinship caring is authorised in the ACT, all carers will undergo a review every 3 years.
