Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family Programs
Our programs are committed to providing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people with the care they need to meet their social, emotional and behavioural needs.
Our Family Preservation program is committed to building strong, well-functioning families. It educates and empowers parents and children, enabling many families to remain safely together or to reunite through restoration.
Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Foster Care program provides emergency short-term care, long-term care and respite care to children and young people who require out-of-home care to meet their social, emotional and behavioural needs.
Foster Care Support
Our Foster Care Support program provides carers with ongoing training, assessment reports and 24/7 caseworker support and advocacy. We like to think of our carers as part of a larger Narang Bir-rong foster family, to promote a sense of belonging and community.
Leaving and Aftercare Program
When a young person in kinship or foster care reaches the age of 18, they are technically leaving the care system. NBAC’s Leaving and Aftercare Program works to support our young people during their transition out of care to independence.
