More SA foster carers needed
The Department for Families and Communities says about 100 children are in need of foster care.
Families SA executive director David Waterford says the Government needs a wider range of people to become carers.
“The shortfall has really been for the last four or five years and we’ve had an increasing number of children coming into care,” he said.
“There has been growth in the number of foster carers but it hasn’t kept up with the rate at which children have been coming into care.”
