Fostering Connections is a joint initiative of foster care agencies across metropolitan and regional Victoria. It was launched in 2016 to raise awareness of Victoria’s ongoing need for new foster carers. Fostering Connections also provides Victorians with information about foster care and how to become an accredited foster carer.

Fostering Connections is here to support you whether you’re thinking about foster care for the first time or ready to apply to be a carer. Learn more about how we can help.

Fostering Connections acknowledges the support of the Victorian Government.
