Emergency or crisis care


Emergency and Crisis Care

Foster carers urgently needed

The children below need somewhere to stay immediately.

This may be their first time in care or they may just need somewhere to stay while other suitable care is found. Whatever the reason, these children are in urgent need of emergency and crisis care, safety in what is a very stressful time in their lives.

Children seeking emergency or crisis care

Through no fault of their own, these children are urgently seeking a safe place to call home. Experience isn’t necessary, all these children need is a safe home and someone committed to providing the care and support every child deserves. A long-term solution would be ideal, but if you think you could help, even in the short term, please call our team today on 13 18 19 or contact us below.


9-year-old Melanie urgently needs a safe and caring home. Could you help, even for a short while?

She loves gymnastics, making up dances, and animals, and also enjoys taking time to relax with activities like colouring in and reading.

Melanie is happy to engage with other children during activities and at school but still needs to be supported to learn appropriate social and peer group interactions. A female carer with no other children would be the best fit for Melanie.

14 year old zach


Unable to live with his birth family, 14-year-old Zach needs somewhere safe to live in Sydney.

Zach likes sports, soccer is his passion, he has a good sense of humour, is very sociable and enjoys exploring the outdoors.

He’s in regular ongoing contact with his family, so it’s important he has a carer who will help him maintain a strong connection.

Ben and Max

14-year-old twin boys Ben and Max urgently need a safe place to call home.

Like most boys, they enjoy video games, but are also quite active and enjoy camping, skateboarding and other sports. While engaged at school, both benefit from supported learning.

Ben and Max interact well with other children and want to remain in contact with their natural family. They are also keen to learn more about their cultural background so need a carer willing to explore this with them.
