There are thousands of children and young people aged 0-17 in the New South Wales out-of-home care system needing a loving home. And while there are many caring individuals and families opening up their homes and lives to foster children, there remains an ongoing need for more carers.
We understand the decision to foster is a big one. You’ll first need to talk about it with the people close to you. The next step is to contact the Challenge Foster Care team to discuss your situation and your suitability as a foster carer. Once you become a carer you’ll be supported all the way by a dedicated caseworker and the Challenge team.
We urgently need dedicated people to provide care to children currently in motels and in need of a safe a nurturing home.
Ethan loves all things sport and just being generally active. He enjoys watching NRL and is a big Roosters fan. Not only does is love soccer, he is a talented player, and trains twice a week with his local team.
We are looking for carers who can provide a stable home and assistance with managing his ADHD. Ethan’s carers will need to understand trauma informed care or are willing to learn techniques to best support Ethan to manage his behavioural disorders.
Like most 9 year old boys, Jared loves playing video games.
We are looking for foster carers who can help him remain connected to his community and culture, as well as provide Jared with a structured routine, strong boundaries and above all, patience and understanding. He would be best suited to a home with no other children or animals so he can focus on regaining structure in his life.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Jenny also helps Tina to keep in touch with her siblings and family via video calls.
We are looking for foster carers like Jenny with experience in trauma, who love the outdoors and live within the Sydney region to mentor this young person to become a confident adult.
Cooper has been diagnosed with Autism, ADHD and a mild intellectual disorder, therefore, he would be best suited to a family with no other children or pets. We need carers that reside in the Central Coast region who enjoy similar activities and are experienced and knowledgeable with his conditions.
From the athlete to the story-teller, these children will bring personality to any home.
Whilst all children enjoy being active, either outside or playing group sports, they also enjoy alone time and will thrive with a supportive carer who is prepared to spend one-on-one time with them.
Challenge Foster Care is seeking someone who has an understanding of the importance of family and community connections and can provide a stable and supportive environment for these children.
