Host Agency Applications Now Open for 2019

Dear Potential Host Agencies,

We are excited to be opening up Applications for our new year of Carer Kafe Training. To read the full list of training sessions on offer in 2019 please read the guide here. 

These training sessions are available for all Foster Care Agencies, Kinship Care Agencies and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations to host for their carers to get free training. 

You can apply to host upto 6 training sessions in 2019. If you wish to host more than 6 sessions, please fill in the application again following the same process.

To apply to host a training session please follow the steps below:

Step 1: Read the Training Manual for 2019.  This manual clearly articulates the responsibilities of each party in the delivery of the Statewide Learning and Development calendar of training sessions for kinship and foster carers.

Step 2: Read the Carer Kafe Training Guide for the complete list of training sessions available. Keep note of which sessions would be best suited for your carers.

Step 3: Fill in the Host Agency Budget Application form and email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Step 4: Complete this survey to better equip Carer Kafe with your own programs and any service gaps

Step 5: The final step is to fill in the Application form below and pick which sessions you would like to host.

All five steps must be completed as a part of the application process.

Carer KaFE will then work on a Statewide schedule that ensures we cover the needs of your carers in the most convenient location possible. This may mean that your agency may not host a particular session you requested because a nearby agency will be hosting the session.

This does NOT mean you cannot advertise it to your carers, we encourage carers to access any training session independent of who is hosting and we rely on agencies to let the carers know of the whole schedules. Similarly if you are hosting we fully support you inviting nearby agencies for their carers also.

 Applications will close on Friday 30th November 2019. 

If you have any questions please feel free to email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call us on 9416 4292
