A foster carer provides a safe and stable family environment for vulnerable children and youth.
You may have heard people use the term â€˜foster parentâ€™. We prefer to use the term â€˜foster carerâ€™ because children in care already have parents and, while they may not currently be living with them, they still hold the role of parent in that childâ€™s life. As a foster carer you will need to help any child in your care maintain a connection with their family.
The term foster carer can avoid any confusion for the child and any intrusion on the role of their birth family.
