Fostering NSW


ACWA is proud to be the provider of the Fostering NSW Recruitment Project, and has been doing so since 2012. Fostering NSW is a partnership between the NSW Government and non-government foster care agencies and provides an information and referral service to potential foster carers on behalf of the sector. This ongoing, state-wide public awareness campaign is designed to support the recruitment efforts of Out Of Home Care agencies by raising general awareness of foster care, encouraging people to ‘Be Part of an Amazing Journey’ and find out more about becoming a foster carer by visiting Fostering NSW or calling the 1800 number (1800 236 783).

ACWA also provides information and resources about the Fostering NSW project to support Agencies in their own recruitment activities. This content is hosted under the Information for Agencies section of the Fostering NSW website
