Foster Care Information

Foster care can be a rewarding and challenging career and one that will have a real impact on your life, as well as the lives of your friends and family.

If you’re thinking of becoming a foster carer with Key Assets, it’s important to gather as much foster care information as you can.

Here’s where you start

Firstly, find out exactly what is foster care as well as other useful fostering information throughout this section of the website.

It is important to understand why children need foster care? Many of the children and young people referred to Key Assets have experienced earlier life difficulties that can have an impact on their behaviour and relationships. Many of these children will have highly complex needs which make considerable demands on the foster carer.

If you have any queries please call us on (08) 8274 5900.
