Kinship Carer Services
WHAT IS THE

Our program works with Yol\u families to keep children within their family homes or with close family. 

 

We work specifically on a grass roots level in Galiwinku community to connect families with the necessary services to keep children within their family homes.  

The program also identifies and develops Yol\u families to qualify to become foster carers to maintain kinship connections and cultural practices.
