Share your home, share your life. Become a foster carer with Uniting Communities.
When a child can’t stay with their birth family, our foster carers can provide children the safe, stable and supportive home they need. While foster care is often both rewarding and challenging, when you become a foster carer you can form strong bonds with a child as they become part of your family.
Uniting Communities provides care for children up to 18 years who have an intellectual disability or complex needs. Our foster carers can choose to provide long-term care or short-term respite care in metropolitan Adelaide, South Australia.
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.
