Foster Care Week


Foster Care Week is a special time to celebrate the enormous contribution of foster carers and everything they do to help our most vulnerable children. This group of extraordinary, unique individuals make our communities and society a better place by offering support, security, love and understanding to the children in their care. We know from experience that being a foster carer isn’t always easy, but it is extremely rewarding, and truly does change a young person’s life forever.

So, to all our amazing foster carers, thank you. Each day this week we’ll be sharing a little light on why exactly we’re so thankful on our social media channels…so stay tuned. Even though we’re apart right now, please know that everyone in our community is clapping for you…because you’re truly extraordinary.

Lighthouse is still looking for 8 more long-term foster carers to join our new program, offering continuous support, regular respite and access to our unique ‘Hub Home’. So, if you’ve been inspired this week to find out a little more about fostering…we’d love to hear from you on 1800 542 273 or by visiting
