We provide out of home care in NSW, VIC and Western Australia. We protect and nurture every young person and family we work with, and give them the chance to build a brighter future.

MacKillop understands the important role foster carers play in supporting vulnerable children, young people and their families. We are committed to supporting you, so you can provide the best care possible.

We use a therapeutic care model. You and your foster child are supported by a specialist team that helps you understand your foster child and respond appropriately to their needs.

  • Comprehensive training, ongoing support and financial assistance, to ensure children receive the best care;
  • Recognition and acknowledgement of your role as a key member of the care team;
  • Regular home visits, phone calls and access to MacKillop’s after-hours support service;
  • Regular planned respite;
  • Access to a team of professionals including MacKillop’s therapeutic specialists, principal practitioner and cultural support workers; and
  • Training in therapeutic foster care and Trauma Informed Care.
