Foster Care Angels receives no government or recurrent funding. In order to provide our unique support services we rely on the generous support of businesses and individuals. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming an individual sponsor or Corporate Sponsor. We offer tax deductions and being a corporate sponsor means you will receive marketing advertising across all our social media, newsletters, website and all digital platforms, but most of all, you will be making a real difference to the lives of children and young people entering Foster Care.
For 8 years our Care Packages helped to ease the transition into foster care. We are incredibly proud of our achievement in bringing this need to the attention of the New South Wales Government.
Foster Care Angels support carers by organising a weekend conference with workshops, seminars, counselling support and the opportunity to build a peer support network.
Fostering Family Training and Support
This program has been placed on hold as this is currently no longer a gap in New South Wales. Training is provided in house by registered agencies and other government funded organisations.
The Christmas Drive program aims to provide Christmas gift hampers to children and young people living in motels at Christmas.
Our program has been developed by a qualified counsellor who has extensive experience working with young people who have experienced trauma and are at great risk of experiencing mental health problems
Our holiday cabin aims to provide an affordable holiday option for foster families.
The use of Therapy Dogs is designed to help young people improve their physical, social, emotional or cognitive function.
Bed In A Bag
Our Bed In A Bag Program is currently on hold. As a non-funded organisation we prioritise our services to fill gaps within the system and address the needs of those within the foster care system. Should the need arise we will re-instate this program.
We are thrilled that it is no longer necessary for us to offer our University Scholarship program. Since the introduction of our University Scholarship the New South Wales government has committed to three University Scholarships per year for young people with a care experience.
The Launch Pad
Our exciting new program offers long term, supported accommodation for 18 years olds who are evicted from foster care on their 18th birthday.
What can YOU do?
You too can be an "Angel" and support the valuable work we do. A small ongoing gift will go a long way.
$30 per month would provide food and grooming for our therapy dogs,
$40 per month would enable 2 young people to access mental health education and support,
$50 per month would provide furnishings for a young person entering our supported living program,
$780 would pay for 2 carers to attend a weekend Carer Conference.
