Riverland foster care forums - Supporting Vulnerable Young People in the Community

ac.care will host the Supporting Vulnerable Children in Our Community forums on August 19 in Berri and Renmark.

“There are sadly not enough foster carers in the Riverland to provide safe homes and positive relationships for the growing number of young people who are unable to live with their biological parents due to no fault of their own,” ac.care Riverland foster care manager Tenille Chartres said.

“This is a significant social issue for our community and we hope this forum allows people to learn more about the local situation and the inspiring difference foster carers can make in young lives.”

A key element of the event will be the premiere of short films specially produced for the events featuring foster carers from the region sharing their caring journey.

The inspiring carers will also answer questions from the audiences following the screenings, where ac.care staff and other guests involved in the child protection sector will also share information and answer questions.

A short film featuring Peter and Deb's foster care journey will be shared at the Renmark forum. Here's a snippet of their story. They will appear at the forum and be available to answer questions. For more details on the upcoming forums see the information below.

A short film featuring Lauren's foster care journey will be launched at the Berri forum. Lauren will also answer questions and discuss her experiences as a carer with the audience. For more details on the upcoming forums see the information below.
