The role of Foster Carers

Meli Foster Carers provide a safe, loving and nurturing environment for children and young people.

Foster Carers play a very important role in a child or young person’s life by providing much needed stability and care during a time when they cannot live with their parents or extended family. Foster Carers are able to offer children and young people a safe and stable home environment and this plays a critical role in promoting a child and young person’s development and wellbeing.

Meet Amanda and Jessie, some of our Foster Carers

Foster Carers support a child or young person to maintain a connection with their cultural or religious beliefs and contact with their extended family. Foster Carers are part of a team, they are involved in decision making about the child or young person they are providing care for and receive 24 hour support, ongoing training and financial support.
