Aboriginal Children in Foster Care

Aboriginal children are over represented in foster care.  Wanslea believes that where possible, Aboriginal children should be cared for by Aboriginal carers.  Wanslea Foster Care strives to connect Aboriginal children with their culture and with their family network.

Wanslea has support staff trained in culturally appropriate assessments.  Many of the things Aboriginal families think might stop them from becoming foster parents – being single, already having children and no spare room, renting, multi-generational living arrangements or some criminal record are not necessarily impediments to becoming a foster carer.

Wanslea Foster Care has produced a film which is a call to action for foster carers to work more closely with birth families and for Aboriginal children to be connected to family and culture.  The film was launched at a 2015 conference in Perth.
