Brophy is the south-west’s only 24/7 support hotline for foster care. You can reach out at any time and we’ll be here to help!


  • We will help you choose the type of care that best suits your household
  • You will be able to choose the length of time a child or young person stays with you – a weekend, a week, a month, a year or longer. We understand that you and your household are unique!
  • We work with you and the children in your care to ensure a good fit


A dedicated case-worker will be with you every step of the way. You can become part of a Foster Care Support Group for further support and networking!


There is no such thing as a silly question! We are always here to help. We’ll do our beset to keep you informed at all times. Regular communication will be provided to our carers from our engagement and placement teams.


We live in your community and our locally-staffed hotline is available 24/7, so we are here, on call to support you at all times.

If you are unsure of how to handle a situation or just need to talk about something happening with one of the kids in your care, we’re just a call away!
