Foster A Future – Foster Care Program

BCYF believes every child in the Barwon Region has the right to a stable and loving home.

In Australia an increasing number of children and young people are requiring Foster Care but, despite the increased need, there is a critical shortage of Foster Carers to provide the care they need, including in the Barwon area.

You can help by financially supporting our annual Foster A Future appeal. Funds raised through the appeal support BCYF’s current Foster Care families and train prospective carers.  In return your donation will help provide safe, more stable and longer term foster care homes for children and young people in the Barwon Region.

Sponsor a Backpack Bed – Reducing Youth Homelessness

Every night, more than 200 young people are homeless in our community.  The ultra light-weight Backpack Bed is an all-weather crisis bed which provides life-saving homelessness support.

By sponsoring a bed to a young person sleeping rough, you will receive recognition for supporting our Youth Services Team to reduce youth homelessness.  To find out more, please contact
