Who is Caring Families Aotearoa?

Caring Families Aotearoa (formerly Fostering Kids New Zealand) was formed more than 40 years ago to help caregiving families. We are here to support families who open their homes and hearts to tamariki (children) and rangatahi (young people) in need of care and protection.

Strong support is vital to ensure stable and secure homes for children in care.
It is so important you never feel alone during  your caregiving journey.
Caring Families Aotearoa offers a variety of support, advocacy and information
to meet your individual needs.
