The Circle Program is a therapeutic approach to foster care which aims to create better outcomes for children and young people in care through early intervention.
Foster Care provides a safe, nurturing home for children who are unable to live with their own family. Fully trained foster carers provide short, medium or long term periods of care and are supported by a foster care worker. There are many different Foster Care options including short term, long term and permanent, respite and emergency (overnight to long term). Find out more about foster care here.
Kinship Care provides support to families who are caring for a child of a relative or friend who is unable to live with their own family at that time. Information, advice and support is provided to help Kinship carers in their caring role.
