Our services include support to help families stay together, foster care (including respite, emergency, kinship, short-term and long-term), guardianship and adoption. We also support young people to transition from care to living independently.
Foster Care Services
Can you open your home to a child in need?
Foster carers step in when a child’s natural family don’t have the capacity to provide a safe and nurturing environment.
Our foster carers often share their experiences with us, highlighting the joys and fulfilling moments they’ve experienced while caring.
No matter where you are in your adoption journey, it can be an emotional time.
It is one of the most life-changing experiences a person or family can face – and a little empathy and understanding goes a long way.
Is adoption right for you?
Let’s talk it over.
The Intensive Family Preservation Program (IFPP) is a voluntary family support service, providing specialised support to vulnerable families.
Focusing on the safety and wellbeing of children between 0-17 years, IFPP supports those who have come in contact with the child protection system – offering support and resources to build family resilience, strength and capacity.
Leaving Care & After Care for Young People
Reaching adulthood is an exciting time for a young person ready to leave out-of-home care.
Part of that journey towards independence means gaining the necessary social, emotional and practical skills to enjoy a self-sufficient life.
With Family Spirit, young adults are supported with specialised programs to transition to independent living.
