Share your home, share your life. Become a foster carer with Uniting Communities.
When you become a foster carer, you will have the opportunity to build strong bonds with the child in your care as your home becomes a safe, stable and supportive place for them. You will be there to see the smiles and achievements, and work through the tough times.
Through Uniting Communities you can provide long-term foster care or short-term respite foster care in Adelaide, South Australia. You will be giving children aged 5 to 17 years old with intellectual disabilities or complex needs who can’t stay with their birth families the supportive home they need.
Uniting Communities is here for our foster carers 24 hours a day, and supports people wishing to become a foster carer throughout the application process. We provide the latest training for our foster carers, who also receive an allowance to help cover the cost of caring for the child.
