What is Futures?
Futures Foster Care service provides long term disability and therapeutic foster care options for children and young people with often significant trauma and abuse histories, developmental, physical and/or medical care needs.
Foster care is the care of a child or young person who is not able to live with their own family. Foster care aims to provide children and young people with a safe and supportive home where they can form meaningful relationships and can be supported to grow and develop to their full potential.
We believe ALL children have the right to grow and develop in a safe, nurturing family environment providing them with stable, secure, consistent and nurturing care. We believe that the needs of all children, including those with a disability are generally best met in a family environment.
Who is Futures for?
Futures is for children and young people with significant trauma and abuse histories, developmental, physical and/or medical care needs.

Beth and Niel's Story
How can I get involved?
Children and young people are referred to Futures by Department of Child Protection and Family Services. If you think it is a service that someone you know might benefit from, please get in touch.
Futures are always looking for new foster carers. We are looking for people who have empathy and compassion, who are passionate and resilient and are able to make a long term commitment to nurture children and support their growth and development.
