It’s Foster Care Week in NSW. Joining us on our podcast is Community Father of the Year 2022 – Rick Pekan and Teigan Reilly from The Department Communities WA.

Foster carers play a critical role in the community for children in need and unfortunately the ratio of foster carers to children is still significantly lacking.

In this podcast we hear Rick and Teigan’s journey of foster caring, what it involves and the positive outcomes for children and the community.

If you are interested in becoming a foster carer, we encourage you to learn more – Head to the Child Protection relevant to your state.

Based in WA? Teigan can support you and is currently recruiting for the East Metropolitan Region – South Perth through to Serpentine /Jarrahdale. Give her a call on 0476 111 050.
