Aboriginal carers

You could make a difference

Children who have strong connections with their culture, community and family have higher self-esteem, confidence and expectations of what they can achieve.

Aboriginal carers play an important role in supporting the lives of Aboriginal children and young people.

You may choose to care for a child for a weekend each month, for a few weeks, months or even years.
