It takes a community to raise a child
It takes a community to raise a child and a network of many to support the social, economic and cultural development of our people.
The Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-Operative is proud to support the foster care of Aboriginal children, and we need your support! It could involve simply an overnight stay, for a month or for even longer, a little bit goes a long way in providing a safe, nurturing home to child or young person in need!

Choosing Foster Care
What is Foster Care?
Foster care is care provided by people in their own homes for children and young people who cannot live with their families. Where it is in their best interest, children and young people are reunited back with their birth family as soon as possible.
Why become a Foster Carer?
All around Victoria, people of all walks of life, background, age and experience open their hearts and homes to children and young people who are unable to live with their family. Experience the cultural, social and developmental journey of a child and give them the chance to thrive in a safe, caring and loving environment. Our children come from various cultural, religious and socio-economic backgrounds, don’t miss your chance to experience the strengthening and maintaining their cultural identity and connection of a child to the Wathaurong community.
