What is Foster Care?
Foster Carers provide care for a child or young person within a home environment when they cannot live at home with their parents or extended family due to issues of risk or safety.
Foster Carers can assist by providing:
- Overnight or emergency care
- Respite for parents or other Foster Carers one weekend a month or once a fortnight
- Short term care (up to 6 months)
- Long term care (over 6 months)
BCYF’s foster care service is for vulnerable children and young people who reside in:
- Colac Otway
- Surf Coast
