As human beings, we’re programmed to look after ourselves and our family first and foremost. But then there are those people that go beyond what’s expected. They’re dedicated to opening their homes and their hearts to children and young people in need.
Some call them foster or kinship carers. We prefer to think of them as life-changers.
And now, we want to take the opportunity to thank all the amazing people who’ve reached out and changed the life of a child or young person. Over weekends, months or years, they’ve cared and supported children and young people when they need it most. They’ve offered safe and secure homes in which to live, learn and develop, guiding them towards a positive future.
At UnitingCare Queensland, we’re committed to supporting all foster and kinship carers throughout their journey in changing the life of a child or young person. We understand the issues and challenges that foster families may face. Through open communication and respect for each other, we work closely with carers in their critical and selfless role as they help children and young people reach their full potential.
Together, we’re making a real difference.
If you’d like to become a life-changer, say yes to foster care and get in touch with us today. Call us on 1300 554 240 or click here for more information.
