Samaritans Foundation
In Professional Services

Samaritans provide foster care in Newcastle, Mudgee and regional NSW. Foster carers provide a safe and nurturing environment for children and young people who are not able to live with their family.

Some children and young people are in need of care for a few days, others for months and others stay in care with their foster family until they turn 18.

“We fostered a young man for ten years; there were lots of challenges but also lots of laughter and love. As a family we would not change that experience for the world – we all grew as people and this special young man will always be in our hearts as one of the family.” – Long Term Foster Carer

We operate foster care in:

Central Coast
Newcastle and Lake Macquarie
Mudgee
Central Western NSW
What is Foster Care?
Foster care is providing a secure and safe home for children who can’t live at home. Children need foster care for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes it’s because a parent is sick. Other times it could be because of serious abuse or neglect. Whatever the reason, these kids all need safe and caring environments for however long it takes to sort out the problems in their families.

The full roll out of the Permanency Support Program from July 2018 is one is one of the most significant changes made to the NSW child protection and out of home care systems in decades. The program is a government and sector-wide reform to child protection and foster care practice and culture and supports the safety, well-being and positive life outcomes for children and young people in the child protection system in NSW.
