FCAV

The Foster Care Association of Victoria (FCAV) is the peak support body for foster carers within Victoria; providing free and independent support, information and advocacy.

Australian Childhood Trauma Group (the ACT Group) and the FCAV have worked in partnership since 2009 supporting foster carers and workers by addressing their training and support needs. Together, they visited every region of Victoria for 2 consecutive years, providing highly sought after training.  In 2010, they co-hosted the state conference, attended by more than 200 delegates, helping foster carers and workers to translate theory into practice.

In 2012, the ACT Group continues its relationship with FCAV by providing subsidized places for foster carers to attend selected ACT Group training events. In addition, this year, the FCAV is hosting the National Foster & Kinship Carer Conference on 20 & 21 October in Albert Park, Victoria, and the ACT Group is proud to be participating in this national event.

FCAV is a valuable and useful addition to a carer's toolkit to help navigate the foster care journey. If you are a foster carer in need of support or advice please visit the FCAV website www.fcav.org.au or phone 03 9489 9770.
