The Benevolent Society’s Fostering Young Lives program, which supports children and young people who cannot live at home, has recently commenced service delivery in our City. As one if its first activities, the Benevolent Society is recruiting foster carers.
There are many reasons why people become foster carers, but it is usually for a love of children and a belief they can make a difference in the lives of children in need. Anyone who is over 21 years of age and wants to provide a loving home to look after children and young people can apply to be a foster carer.
Being a foster carer can involve weekends, a few months or years. Even one weekend a month makes a world of difference. Please contact the Benevolent Society on 9504 6694 or visit their website www.bensoc.org.au if you’re interested in becoming a foster carer and would like further information.
