Free Online Resources for Foster Parents – opportunity to provide feedback

Dear foster parent/ caregiver,

You are invited to provide feedback on resources recently developed for foster parents. Dr Sara McLean from the Australian Centre for Child Protection has developed a series of resources for foster parents who are supporting children with developmental difference and who may display behavioural or social concerns. Dr McLean was funded by the Eureka Benevolent Foundation to work with foster parents to develop a series of free downloadable resources to assist caregivers with a range of topics related to children’s behaviour.

We are now seeking feedback about these resources from a larger group of foster parents and other caregivers about how the resource may be used or improved. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

The easiest way to be involved is to click on the link below, which will take you to the Australian Centre for Child Protection website; then follow the prompts to the online survey.  You may also view the resources on this page.

Participation could take up to 30 minutes, and will involve reading one (or more) of the resources and answering a brief feedback questionnaire. To participate in this survey, please click on the link below.
