Uniting welcomes carers from all cultural backgrounds and family situations. Carers become highly valued members of our care team and Burnside is committed to building supportive relationships with carers, offering them:

  • Specialist support and individual planning for children, young people and carers,
  • Professional development opportunities and training,
  • Tax free allowance.

Uniting is also working in capacity building partnerships to establish aboriginal foster care agencies in Western Sydney and Western NSW. Ngurambang, located in Dubbo, and Gaba Yula, located in North Parramatta, are currently recruiting aboriginal foster carers in these regions.
