On any given night, up to 400 kids in our region are in foster care. We urgently need more local carers to help these kids stay connected to their friends, schools and sporting clubs. 

Foster carers come from all walks of life. And we know footy netball clubs are the heartbeat of our regional communities. You simply need to:

  • Be at least 21 years old 
  • Have a spare bedroom
  • Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
  • Can complete a police check and working with children check

Can you help?

Every child deserves a safe and loving home. However many children in our region find themselves without stable family environments. Whether due to neglect, abuse, or other difficult circumstances, these children face significant challenges that can have lasting impacts on their lives. That’s where foster care plays a crucial role.

Foster carers make a difference to thousands of children across Victoria every day – whether that’s over a weekend, a month or more. People from all backgrounds and walks of life are encouraged to consider fostering. Foster Carers can be couples, families, singles, retirees, young professionals, working, not working, childless, homeowners or renters – it doesn’t matter! 
What does matter is that you can create a safe and supportive home for a child or young person in need.

Brophy Foster Care. Local care, for local kids.

Local foster care allows children to remain in their schools, keeping them connected to their teachers, friends, and extracurricular activities. It provides them with stability and a support network that can help them thrive during a challenging time. When children remain local, they can maintain connections with extended family members, neighbours, friends and sporting clubs that are familiar and comforting to them. 

Whilst fostering can have some hard parts, there are lots of rewarding parts too. And Brophy Foster Care is with you with training, guidance and 24-7 local support. 

Your contribution can make a positive impact on a local child.
