Fostering information for South Australia

Key Assets is a non-government organisation providing foster care in South Australia. Working in partnership with the Department for Families and Communities, our services compliment the ‘out of home’ care services.

Our service provision is designed to meet a wide range of needs, including those of children and young people with complex and complicated histories who may make considerable demands upon their carers. Intensive support services are provided to foster carers, foster children, young people and their families through multidisciplinary teams of child care professionals.

Commissioning our services

Our services are available for commissioning on an individual basis or through block contracts for particular groups of children, according to a range of specified components at regional- or state-wide levels.
