You can change a child’s life… and there is no better time than now!

Marymead is in urgent need of people who are willing to provide a safe and nurturing home for children and young people aged zero to 18. We are looking for people who can care for children, young people and families by supporting restoration, adoption, guardianship or long-term foster care.

All kinds of people make great carers - single people, couples and families, gay or straight people and employed or unemployed from a range of cultures and lifestyles. Great carers are stable and consistent, persevere when things get tough, strongly support children and young people to maintain their connection with their birth family and remain focused on the best needs of the children and young people.

We are especially seeking people who are able to open their hearts and homes to Indigenous children and young people and young adolescents with high needs and sibling groups.

Marymead provides carers with all the support they need including initial and ongoing training, 24/7 on-call support, an experienced and dedicated caseworker, direct carer support and a tax free carer allowance.

For more information on Marymead’s Permanency Program please call 1800 427 920 or email fcinfo@marymead.org.au.
