South Australians are being encouraged to focus on the importance of helping others and contributing to the community through time of uncertainty, with a new foster care recruitment campaign.

The recruitment campaign, led by the Department of Child Protection, urges people to consider whether they could provide a safe, stable and loving home for children and young people in need.

Kicking off this week, the campaign will run across social media platforms and asks the community to share carer stories and raise awareness about the need for more foster carers using the hashtag #FosterCareSA.

With an ongoing need for foster carers, the campaign will highlight the voices of current carers sharing their foster care experiences.
