Farewell 2020… Roll on 2021!

2020 has been an incredibly challenging year for the entire world and one we will not easily forget with COVID-19 impacting the way many of us live our day to day lives.

The Carer KaFÉ team would like to acknowledge the difficult times faced by all those associated with the out-of-home care sector as they care for Victoria’s vulnerable children and young people. 

Our valuable carers have remained at the forefront of us all here at Carer KaFÉ!  In response to the pandemic we thankfully were able to adapt face-to-face sessions to online and this year alone Carer KaFÉ delivered a total of 67 training sessions to around 800  carers and agency staff. See here a snapshot of 2020...

Adjustments due to COVID-19 have highlighted the convenience and flexibility of online sessions but also shown the value of face to face delivery for carers. That’s why in 2021 we’ll be offering both and can’t wait to see all the Statutory Kinship and Accredited Foster Carers throughout Victoria in attendance to take full advantage of our many learning opportunities!

Over the holiday period, we also encourage all carers to utilise the range of educational resources available on our website, including webinars, podcasts, and online training. Don’t forget to leave feedback to ensure we’re providing the most beneficial sessions and like us on Facebook to stay in the loop with all Carer KaFÉ updates!

Carer KaFÉ would like to wish everyone a joyful and safe festive season as we welcome in a new year and look forward to catching up again in a brighter 2021!
