Join us for a yarn to find out more about becoming a carer

Representatives from a number of non-government, Aboriginal foster care agencies will share the process of becoming a carer and what role agencies play. Wiradjuri man, presenter, actor and My Forever Family NSW Ambassador, Luke Carroll, will also share a message.

Two of the yarns will held in person—with a free BBQ—on Wiradjuri and Awabakal and Worimi Country. At these BBQs you will have a chance to mingle and yarn with agencies, and current, former, and potential carers.

Please feel free to bring your friends and family members who are also interested in finding out about what’s involved in becoming a carer.

All other yarns will be held online, meaning you can join from the comfort of your own home, no matter where you are located.

Find out more about what being a carer involves and register for an upcoming yarn. We look forward to meeting you.
