At Narang Bir-rong Aboriginal Corporation, we dedicate ourselves to finding the best quality carers for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people. By providing the highest standard of family-based care, best-practice casework and specialist support services, we not only support the child or young person in care, but the carer and their family.
- Ongoing training – first aid, behaviour management and trauma-informed training
- Respite care – scheduled or sporadic care for those children in your care, should you need it
- Carer reviews – follow up and feedback from training
- 24/7 caseworker support and advocacy.
All our carers are part of a larger, case-managed team that includes caseworkers, program managers and service providers — all working together to create the best outcomes for the child.
NBAC also understands the power of knowledge, so our recruitment workers endeavour to keep all our carers up to date with developments in policies, entitlements and special carer events. Additionally, we have developed many short, thirty-minute training modules for which all attendees will receive a certificate, including managing care plans and life-story work.
Foster Carer Support Group
The NBAC Foster Carer Support Group gives our carers the opportunity to share their experiences with fellow carers who understand the experience and can offer support and reassurance in a private and confidential space.
It is not unusual for some carers to feel like many of their friends, family and health professionals do not really understand their experiences and issues. Talking to other carers can bring relief in the knowledge that they are not alone in their experience.
The Carer Support Group can also provide a space to meet new friends.
Often carers lose touch with friends and family because of the change in circumstances and increased demands on their time. Meeting with a support group can expand social networks, which can help reduce the feeling of isolation and may even provide them with a respite option to ease the stress in difficult times.
