Celebrating Foster and Kinship Carer Week 2022

The Department for Child Protection, in collaboration with our non-government partners, is hosting events across South Australia this September to thank and celebrate our dedicated foster and kinship carers as part of Foster and Kinship Carer Week (11-17 September 2022).

As a carer, you play such an important role in keeping children and young people safe, and giving them opportunities to thrive and succeed in life.

The week is about celebrating the contributions you make to the lives of children and young people.

Events and activities to celebrate the week are different for each location. To help with catering, we ask that all carers who are planning to attend an event register via the relevant Eventbrite link below. Please contact your DCP caseworker or kinship worker if you need help registering for an event.

These events are open to all approved foster and kinship carers in South Australia. If you’re part of a two carer household, both carers can attend an event. Carers can attend an event that best suits them in regards to location and date/time, you do not have to attend the event that is linked to your local office.
