About Foster Care

When you become a foster carer, you will care for and nurture the child or young person as a member of your family and be responsible for helping them develop a sense of identity. You will provide safety and stability and be a life-long support for them.

Challenge Community Services carefully matches children and young people with foster carers. Carefully matching placements, along with the training and support our foster carers receive from us, ensures the placement has the best chance of stability.

About Challenge Community Services

60 years ago we were a small band of parents and friends seeking support services for our children with disabilities. Today, Challenge has grown to be one of the largest community support services in New South Wales. We provide support to over 2500 people from Albury to Lismore, Sydney, Dubbo, Tamworth and beyond. With over 600 staff, 85 of which have a disability, we strive to comply with and exceed all standards required under State and Federal Acts.
In the spirit of Reconciliation, Challenge Community Services acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of this country, and their connection to land, water and community. We pay our respect to them, their cultures and customs, and to Elders both past and present.
