Each year, the Department for Child Protection provides family-based carers with an activity grant.

The aim of this grant is to help foster and kinship carers to support the child or young person in their care to participate in a cultural, recreational or social activity of their choice.

This year’s grant, valued at $101, is expected to arrive in carer payslips from 27 July.
