We provide secure homes for children or young people who can no longer live with their family. This is made possible through permanent and temporary foster care options and a range of support services for children, families and carers.
Strong family units are the cornerstone of healthy communities. In the unfortunate circumstance when a child is unable to stay with their birth family, Wesley Dalmar foster carers provide security, stability and a safe place to call home.
Our youth mentoring programs match trained volunteer mentors with young people in need. Not limited to children in foster care, these relationships equip young people to address the challenges and decisions they face.
Transitioning out of care
Research highlights the vulnerable state of children leaving foster care. While our priority is to find safe and loving homes for children in need we also provide educational, physical and emotional support for young people leaving care.
Support for families
We understand and promote the connection between children in care and their birth families by arranging regular, supervised, and safe transport options as well as contacts that encourage positive interactions with their family.
