This year Fostering Connections are celebrating Foster Care Week a little differently with #FosterCare18.
This unique, immersive event is live Monday 10–Friday 14 September 2018 in the foyer of 530 Collins St, Melbourne.
Discover #Fostercare18 and find out how you can help kids in need. Each year, hundreds of children from all walks of life need safe, secure homes. Foster carers provide these homes. This is your opportunity to hear their stories, find out what inspires them, and learn how you can help. Meet everyday people who help kids who need it, download the ‘Fostering Stories’ app, and help spread awareness by adding your tile to the foster care mural.
Want to more hear from from foster carers first hand? Come and join us Fostering Conversations in the lobby of 530 Collins from 11:30am:
