We value our carers and understand that it takes a team effort to support children who've experienced trauma and may be developmentally behind their peers. We provide ongoing training both face-to-face and online, case manager support, regular home visits, after hours crisis support, access to a psychologist, connection to other carers and support groups, events and dinners and much more.
Carers receive a fortnightly tax-free care allowance to pay for the child or young persons day-to-day needs. The allowance is not a salary but a financial contribution to cover the living costs of the children in your care. Additional costs, such as specialist visits, may be discussed with your case manager and included as part of an approved case plan for each child or young person.
