At Parkerville Children and Youth Care we engage two types of Foster Carers; Respite foster carers, volunteer’s who provide a home and care for a child on weekends or during school holidays; and Therapeutic Foster Carers, couples who are genuinely committed to providing long term care, love and a home in a fostering capacity for a child or children with whom a strong relationship has developed.

Becoming a Foster Carer or Respite Foster Carer will help a child by providing:

  • An alternative to long term residential care
  • A support network within the community
  • Increased life opportunities
  • A nurturing environment
  • Long-term stability

Therapeutic Foster Care provides an environment which is:

  • Loving and Safe
  • Nurturing and Secure
  • Caring and Therapeutic
