Research : Barriers to Foster Carer Engagement

There is an urgent need for 600 foster carers in NSW just to meet current demand.

Foster carers are exiting the system at an alarming rate.

Earlier this year, we conducted our first research project, entitled "Barriers To Foster Carer Engagement" where we interviewed 70 foster carers across NSW and asked about their foster carer experience. Some very concerning themes arose from this research which was presented to Gareth Ward - Minister Department of Communities and Justice (Formerly Family and Community Services) in July2019.
