CF&KC-SA aims to improve the lives of children and young people in care through provision of services addressing the key themes:
ADVOCATE · SUPPORT · CONNECT · INFORM
CF&KC-SA’s services value and support Carer families to sustain strong and positive relationships in homes across South Australia.
CF&KC-SA offers opportunities for Carers to:
- Connect with other Carers;
- Receive information about caring;
- Access help and advocate for change; and
- Discuss issues and receive support from a peer – someone who understands and can share caring experiences.
CF&KC-SA is supported by Members to progress, improve and promote foster and kinship care, and to ensure approved Carers are recognised as vital partners within the child protection system.
CF&KC-SA works together with Carer families, the Department for Child Protection, support agencies and other partners to bring about positive change in South Australia.
CF&KC-SA is a free service for approved Carers and anyone seeking information about foster and kinship care. If you would like to discuss ways CF&KC-SA can assist and support you, please contact us.
