Do you have some extra space in your house, and in your heart? In Australia, there are currently 50,000 children living in out-of-home care.

This week is Foster Care Week, and while caring for children in need can seem a daunting prospect, it is also a very rewarding experience.

Kate Page (pictured), a local mum and foster carer, and Sue Madden from Anglicare Foster Care joined Hope Breakfast’s Sam & Duncan to help them understand a little more clearly the importance of Foster Care in our community, and what being a carer looks like on a day to day basis.
