About Us

To care for Victoria’s children and young adults in foster and kinship placements, carers themselves need training and support. Launched on 21 April 2017, Carer KaFÉ provides learning and development opportunities for carers throughout Victoria. Take a look at our training calendar to discover, share and connect at a session near you.

Carer KaFÉ is hosted by the Foster Care Association of Victoria and supported by a governing reference group. Organisations represented on the Governing Reference Group are the:

  • Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)
  • Foster Care Association of Victoria (FCAV)
  • Kinship Carers Victoria (KCV)
  • Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare
  • Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency (VACCA)
