Hello, and welcome to the Northern Territory Office of Children and Families (OCF) Foster Care website!
Foster carers are volunteers who play a highly valued and important role in our community, caring for children of all ages, backgrounds, cultural identities and family types.
Foster Carers are everyday people, willing and able to open their own homes to provide children with safe, supportive and loving environments when children are unable to live with their own family.
Foster care can be both a challenging and rewarding experience. It can make a positive difference in a child’s life and in the lives of the Carer and their family as well.
Through this website you can find out more about OCF, what being a Foster Carer means and how you can become involved. If you have any questions please Contact us.
