We’re proud to show our support for the Community Council of Australia’s ‘It Takes a Village’ campaign, which aims to help children stay in school.

Education has the power to transform lives and children do better at school when they are happy, have a sense of belonging and have a range of positive influences in their lives. We know that the role of our carers, in providing a safe, supportive and stable home environment for children who have experienced trauma, is so important to helping them maintain their engagement at school.

We encourage you to get behind the campaign by talking about the importance of education with your friends, family and community, or by sharing your experiences as a carer to inspire others to support a child in need.

Our foster carers are never alone in their caring journey. So if you need help or support, get in touch with us by calling 1300 592 227, or email carers@lwb.org.au, or visit our Foster Care section.
