Piccaninny Foster and Kinship Care Service

Our goal is to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children can grow up safely in their own cultural community. Foster and Kinship Carers provide stability and care to children who can’t live at home, while a process is implemented to safely reunify the child and parents.

Our Family Participation team helps Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families to develop their own action plans, to keep their kids safe and connected to family and culture. We’ll help you come up with a plan that will work for you and your kids, and we’ll help you get support to make your plan a success.
