Foster Care Week.

“Foster Care Week runs from 12th – 18th September. Foster Care week aims to raise awareness about Foster Care in the wider community.” We hear more from the Wathaurong Community.

“We’ll be sharing some ‘Myth Busters’ on our page throughout the week, so check out our socials for your daily dose of Foster Care info this week!
