More foster carers needed

The Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs is looking to recruit more foster carers and has launched a new advertising campaign featuring real foster carers.

The carers are from all walks of life and share their stories without ‘sugar-coating’ their experience, so potential carers have authentic and useful insights about foster care to inform their decision-making.

The campaign is appearing statewide across television, social media, other digital channels and specialist media and encourages people interested in becoming a foster carer to visit the website or call Queensland Foster and Kinship Care on 1300 550 877.
