Carers are supported by My Forever Family NSW in addition to staff from FACS or their non government organisation (NGO).

My Forever Family NSW recruits, trains and supports carers, guardians and adoptive parents across NSW. This can include providing emergency, short-term, respite, restoration, relative/kin or long-term care.

My Forever Family NSW recruits all types of people to be carers including people who are:

  • Aboriginal
  • culturally and linguistically diverse
  • from the LGBTQI community.

They work closely with NGOs to support their work and are keen to hear from anybody who might like to get in touch. You can contact them via enquiries@myforeverfamily.nsw.gov.au or 1300 782 975.
