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. 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

How you can help…

You can make a difference to the lives of children living in foster care, even if becoming a carer isn’t an option for you.

Brophy has partnered with Toyworld Warrnambool and Collins Booksellers Warrnambool to bring joy to these children.

Simply visit these stores and ask to donate to the Brophy account. Your contributions go a long way in providing toys and books for birthdays, Christmas, Easter and other important events and make a massive difference in the lives of children living away from their biological parents.

While not all circumstances allow everyone to be a foster carer, everyone can contribute to creating a safe and supportive environment for children living in care.

You can make a difference.


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.
