Carer Handbook for Kinship & Foster Carers

Together with Child and Youth Protection Services (CYPS), ACT Together and other advocacy groups, we have developed the Carer Handbook as the go-to resource for kinship and foster carers in the ACT.

The handbook provides valuable information to help carers be informed about their role and responsibilities, and where they can go for help and support.



If you require assistance, please email us at kinshipfostercare@carersact.org.au or contact us at 0447 632 067.

This service is funded by the ACT Government Community Services Directorate under the ‘A Step Up for Our Kids, Out of Home Care Strategy 2015-2020
