Spending time with your family

If you're in out-of-home care, you still have the right to stay in contact with your family, including your siblings.

Talk to your caseworker about:

  • how you can stay in touch with your family - by phone, online or catch ups
  • how often you can see your family
  • what you would like to do with family members.

Your caseworker has the responsibility for ensuring you can spend time with family and will organise a meeting to talk about how this can happen with all the people involved such as your foster carer/s, parents/other family members and others where relevant.
